You can hire me to assist with the application process. The application for social security disability is completed online at our office and usually takes about two hours. Having help with the application is especially beneficial to individuals over the age of 50. Social Security Administration must determine if you are able to return to your past work so it is crucial that your past work is accurately described in the application. You can also apply for benefits by yourself online or by contacting your local social security office or calling (800) 772-1213 to set up a telephone appointment with a social security claims representative. Contact me and we can discuss what is the right option for you.
