Alexandria Social Security Disability Resources

Any Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits application in Alexandria, VA can take four or five months to go through the initial review process, with only about 43 percent of applicants being approved for benefits at this stage. If your initial claim is denied, you can request it be reconsidered, though the majority are also denied at this stage as well.

If you’re denied benefits at both the first and second review, you will need to appeal the determination, which sends your application for review by an administrative law judge who will make the final determination on your eligibility. From beginning to end – initial claim to final appeal – the whole process can take a year or longer to complete.

To be found eligible under the Social Security Administration (SSA) guidelines, you must prove you’ve been unable to work due to long term or permanent disability. To apply for Alexandria disability benefits, you can call the SSA at (800)772-1213, visit your local SSA office, or apply online at the SSA’s website. If you need help finding your local SSA office, you can call the phone number listed above.
