Overland Park Social Security Disability Resources

To be found eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits in Overland Park, KS, you must have adequate medical documentation within your application to satisfy the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) guidelines for disability. In other words, you must show you’ve been completely disabled or severely limited by a disability and unable to work full time for one year or more.

You should expect the entire claim’s review process, including any appeals, to take a year to 16 months to complete. If your claim is denied on the first review, which is likely, as the majority of applicants are (about 66%) denied at this initial stage, you can request a second review. If denied following the reconsideration review, you may appeal the determination, in which case it will be reviewed by an administrative law judge.

You may apply Overland Park disability benefits in several ways. You can call the SSA’s main phone for help at (800)772-1213. You can also apply at your local Kansas SSA field office or apply online at the SSA website. If you need assistance finding your local field office, call the phone line listed above or visit the SSA’s Office Locator webpage.
