How to Apply for SSD Benefits

The application process for social security disability benefits is a complex one, requiring a keen eye for detail to ensure the proper steps are followed. An experienced attorney can assist you with this by ensuring your paperwork is filled out properly and advise you on the proper documents to include.

The process for applying for SSD benefits includes:

  • Determine if you have a Case: Our attorney will be able to determine whether or not you have a case after hearing your story. If so, they can advise you on the proper supporting evidence documentation that you should include with your application.
  • Submit Your Application: Fill out the proper paperwork, have it checked for accuracy and completeness by your attorney, and then submit it to the Social Security Administration along with your supporting evidence.
  • Wait for your Decision: Your decision may take three to five months to process, but occasionally may take longer.
  • Appeal your claim: if your claim is initially denied, you may opt to appeal or have a disability hearing. Your lawyer will help you prepare for this process if you wish to pursue it.

  • Without Smolich & Smolich taking my case I would have never gotten my benefits!!!

    “Without Smolich & Smolich taking my case I would have never gotten my benefits!!! Rob Smolich took my case himself and was so helpful in every step of the way. I cant say anything negative about Smolich & Smolich. I had a lawyer before him and he was way more personable. His office took all the stress off my back and made me feel at ease during the time period of waiting. Have nothing but good things to say about this company. They are completely professional!!!!”

If it wasn't for the great staff and attorneys here, I would have never been approved for disability. It was the best Christmas gift i received. They know what it takes to win. Thank you all so much!”
