How Do I Apply for Social Security Disability?

Making a Strong First Impression

Even though the Social Security Administration (SSA) approves less than 30 percent of the initial applications it receives for SSD and SSI benefits, the stronger your application, the stronger your chances for success both initially and if necessary, on appeal.
