Social Security Disability Application Process Now Online

moneypumpIf your disabling condition makes it hard for you to drive or arrange transportation to your local Social Security office, there is some good news from the Social Security Administration. You’re now able to complete and submit your application for Social Security disability benefits from the privacy of your own home computer.

The amount of time the process takes to make a decision on your application can vary depending on a number of factors, such as:

• the nature of the disability;
• how quickly medical records are obtained from your doctors, hospitals, or other medical sources; and
• whether the SSA needs to send you for a medical examination in order to obtain evidence to support your claim.

There are several ways that the service can be sped up. In some cases, a new project known as the Compassionate Allowances initiative allows the SSA to fast-track cases involving people with very severe. Some 165 different types of disabilities qualify for this expedited decision, and that list continues to grow. To read more about the Compassionate Allowances initiative, visit www.socialsecurity.gov/compassionateallowances.

Another way to speed things up involves the Quick Disability Determinations initiative, which uses technology to identify claimants who have the most severe disabilities and then encourages the SSA to expedite those cases.

The SSA also gives claimants a list of things they can do to help speed the process along. The most important is that the more information an applicant provides in the beginning, the less time will be wasted with additional requests. Applicants should make sure to provide the following information initially:

• all medical records or documentation you have;
• the names, addresses, and phone numbers for any doctors, hospitals, medical facilities, treatment centers, or providers related to your disabling condition; and
• the names, addresses, and phone numbers for recent employers and the dates worked for each employer.

If you think you may be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits and have questions, call The Law Offices of John Nicholson at 1-800-596-1533 for a free consultation today.
