The inability to work due to a disability can be frustrating. And, as most Social Security Disability attorneys would be able to tell our readers, the frustration doesn't necessarily end upon applying for SSD benefits - on the contrary, that may be the point when even more frustration begins.
Applying for SSD benefits is a step-by-step process, and patience can be very important during this period of time. For most people the application process starts by filling out the proper paperwork and gathering all of the documentation that will be necessary to show that the applicant meets the medical requirements. An applicant's initial paperwork is usually processed at a local Social Security Administration office.
