How to apply for disability benefits

Applying for social security and disability insurance

You will need to complete an Application for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) AND a Child Disability Report. The key to successfully applying for disability is providing all of the records you have up front.  It will speed up the process.  Applications usually take 4-6 months to process.  If approved they will provide back payment from application processing date.  If denied there is an appeals process that you can go through for additional consideration.
