It is a tool to you can use to see if you qualify for Social Security disability benefits. You can apply for Social Security retirement, spousal, or disability benefits over the Internet. If you are applying for disability benefits, you will need to complete the disability report which is available online. In earlier posts we’ve given you an outline of the information you’ll need to have a complete the disability report.

You can also use the benefit planner to calculate the amount of your retirement or disability benefit.

You can also type in your zip code and find the Social Security office closest to you if you want to visit the office in person. However, we strongly suggest you call the toll-free number 1-800-772-1213 or 727-894 -3188 and schedule an appointment with a representative. Dropping in normally means a long wait before you get to see a representative, so call ahead and get an appointment. You can also contact us here.
