how do I apply for SSD??

Hi Steve,

Hi Steve,
You can do so by going to www.ssa.gov, the SSA have the application available there.

However, many people are denied initially and it may be a good idea to speak with a disability advocate or attorney. If you fill out the form on the left, or go here:

we can have one reach out to you.

Hi Joanna,

Hi Joanna,
It may be a good idea to contact a disability advocate or attorney, they can help you through the process and can fight for you if you're denied. We can have one reach out to you if you fill out the form on the left hand side of the page, or if you go here:

I've been reading

I've been reading through some of the material on the site. My youngest son is diagnosed with autism; from the specialist we've been consulting he'll never be able to live on his own so at present we're seeking conservatorship, this also translates into seeking benefits as he'll also not be able to hold a job to provide for himself. My question is this; why is it such an arduous process that would possibly require me to seek the assistance of a lawyer? Is the bureaucratic backlog that bad that I would be forced to re-apply even though the paper work was submitted correctly the first time? What is the failure criteria that first time submissions have such a high denial rate?
I'm sure these questions have been asked before by others so be assured that this is not a jab at the system, but an earnest attempt at understanding how the system works.
Thanks,
Chris

Hi there,

Hi there,
It generally takes the help of a lawyer as one of the steps in the process is appearing for an Administrative Law Judge, which while not exactly like a court hearing, does require compelling evidence on your part that you are disabled, and a lawyer would usually be better able to establish that than a layperson.
