Applying for SSDI Benefits: Gathering the Right Information
While you may be entitled to receive SSDI benefits, actually obtaining these benefits is no easy task. In fact, numerous SSDI claims are denied every year due to factors outside of ineligibility. Improper claim filings, incorrect information, and missed deadlines all lead to claim denials.
Before applying for Social Security disability, it’s important that you have the right information. Knowing how to properly file your claim can speed up the process and help ensure that your claim is not denied.
Before applying, make sure you understand and have information on the following:
- Your work history for the past 15 years, including dates you started and stopped jobs and how much you earned at those jobs
- When you last worked at a job
- Know your date last insured to apply for SSDI benefits; you can call your local SSA office and ask them what your "Date Last Insured to apply for SSDI disability
- Medical records outlining the extent of your condition/disability
- Recommendations from your doctor regarding your ability to work
- Various application forms and additional documents

What Is Supplemental Security Income (SSI)?
Supplemental Security Income, or SSI, is another government program that provides benefits to those who cannot work due to a disabling condition. Unlike SSDI however, you do not need to have paid into the program in order to receive benefits.
