When Should I Apply for Disability Benefits?

Oklahoma City Social Security Disability Attorney

You should apply for Social Security Disability benefits as soon as you become disabled. If you are applying for Supplemental Security Income, you should apply once you turn 65, become disabled or become blind. It can take a long time for your application to be processed, and you must be disabled for a minimum of five full months in order to receive your first benefits. Starting the process as soon as possible will help ensure there is no delay in the beginning of your benefits.

Your Social Security application will be best processed if you include all pertinent information and properly file your application. An Oklahoma City Social Security Disability lawyer at the Law Offices of Stipe and Belote can help you properly file your claim and can also assist you should any issue arise in regard to medical records or other information that the Social Security Administration needs to make a decision. If your initial application is denied for any reason - and 70% of initial applicants are denied - your attorney can assist you in filing an appeal for reconsideration.

How to Apply for Disability Benefits in Oklahoma

If you are interested in applying for disability benefits, you will need to complete and submit an application for Social Security Benefits and a Disability Report. You can complete these forms online or can print them and mail them to your local Social Security Office or bring them in person.

You will need to provide information about yourself and your medical condition, all treatment you have received, medical records, test results, laboratory results, your most recent W-2 form and your work history. All of this information will be used to determine whether you will be approved for benefits. Have questions about filing for Social Security Disability?
