Take a look at our preferred resources for information about SSD benefits applications so that you complete your paperwork correctly.

The Social Security Administration (SSA) provides funds to people who are temporarily or permanently unable to work due to disability. If this applies to you, you’re not alone. According to the SSA, one in four Americans experiences a period of disability before they are 67 years old.

To claim social security disability (SSD) benefits, you must go through an extensive application process. Following instructions and providing backup documents are important. Often, individuals who would otherwise qualify for SSD are denied benefits simply because they fail to submit the necessary information to prove their disability.

If you need help, you can get advice from a social security attorney in your home state of Arkansas or Oklahoma. To get started on your own, have a look at the websites described below. These are resources that you can use when planning for your social security disability application.

Disability Starter Kit

The Social Security Administration offers a ready-to-print disability starter kit. The kit includes a fact sheet about whether you qualify for benefits. There’s also a checklist to help you apply online or prepare for a telephone or in-person interview with an SSD agent. Lastly, the kit includes a worksheet to draft medical and job information before you complete your official application.

After you use the starter kit, have a look at the SSA’s disability planner. It outlines what happens once you’re approved for benefits.

Social Security Disability Resource Center (SSDRC)

This agency reveals how to prove your SSD claim. While the SSA resources make the application process easier, the SSDRC site details what you have to show the government in order to support your request.

Specifically, the SSDRC shows you how to look critically at your application so that you’re more likely to jump through the bureaucratic hoops. If this site is too complicated for your needs, you can also contact a social security attorney for help.

Social Security Administration YouTube Channel

If you find it easier to get information by listening to (and watching) someone talk, you may prefer the videos on the SSA’s YouTube channel.

Each video is about 10 minutes in length and includes details on the entire SSD application process, including appeals. The lecture segments and dialogues show how the process might unfold for you or another person applying for SSD.

Getting Help

It’s never wrong to ask for help with your SSD application. The process is extremely important, and not everyone can do it on their own. In particular, if you wish to appeal a denied claim, the assistance of a lawyer is invaluable.

Typically I don’t leave much feedback for services rendered, however, in this particular case I think everyone needs to know about my experience with Caddell Reynolds. I have used various attorneys throughout my adulthood for various reasons. Recently I retained an attorney, Joel Hargis, from this firm. If anybody is just satisfied with meeting expectations you need to consider this firm for exceeding expectations. This attorney and his staff far exceeded any expectations I had at the onset. Tammy was amazing in making me feel comfortable with the various entries and documentation needed. Mandy goes above and beyond in being responsive to questions and needs. An example which has never happened to me before with any law firm, was I sent an email late Saturday night requesting an appointment and information and on Sunday I got a response back. What law firm does that? Never in my experience has that ever happened to me. Joel is absolutely amazing. He doesn’t circumvent the law he explains the law that any novice can understand. He left no doubt in my mind of his knowledge, his experience, his attention to detail, and his overall diligence in making sure that I was going to be represented in a manner that my confidence level in my particular case went up 150%. I very much recommend this law firm and if the rest of their legal team is as good as the one I retained within this firm they will go far in servicing any client that needs representation. Amazing and astounding don’t really define or describe how I feel. One word comes to mind, indescribable!
