SSD Application Process

Need to obtain benefits?

Are you looking to file for disability through Social Security? The process can be difficult and lengthy and there may be a lot of hoops to jump through, especially if this is your first time applying.

If you are interested in obtaining your benefits in a timely manner, it is highly recommended that you contact an attorney from Shaheen & Gordon, P.A. Our team of experienced legal professionals can help you apply for your benefits and ensure that you receive them in a timely manner.

Your application starts with you filling out and completing a Social Security benefits form. This form is than sent to the Disability Determination Services (DDS), where it is evaluated. This entire evaluation process may take anywhere from one moth to 120 days, depending on the particular examiner and your specific situation. At the DDS, the examiner that is researching your case will inquire about your disability to medical professionals as well as research employers and relatives to gather information based on your claims. The most common delay of benefits to individuals is the obtaining of medical records, which is why it is so vital that you keep track of every doctor's visit and medical exam.
