Social Security Disability Process
To request Social Security benefits, a disabled person must complete an application for benefits either online or in person at a Social Security Administration regional office. Once the application is filed, it will be investigated by a representative from the Social Security Administration.
If an application for benefits is denied, a disabled person may file a request for reconsideration. If benefits are still denied based on this request, the disabled person can file a request for a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge. If benefits are still denied, you can file an appeal.
