Social Security Disability Benefits in the United States and how to apply

Visiting the official website of the U.S. Social Security Administration website, I found out that there were great information available for people who are looking to find social security benefits data. Below is what it says here.

Steps in Social Security Disability Benefits:

1. Go to www.socialsecurity.gov and select “Apply online for disability benefits.”
2. Fill out the Disability Benefit Application.
3. Answer the questions on the Adult Disability Report.
4. Mail or take the documents we ask for to your Social Security office.

Reagarding all these, it is still best to talk to an official social security representative.

In the U.S., disability benefits get paid through two existing programs mainly, the Social Security disability insurance program and the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program. In Canada as well as in other countries like U.K., Ireland, Australia and India, they also have different existing programs. I strongly suggest to go visit your respective social security website to find out more information. In the meantime, I want to let you know that finding this particular post discussion, rest assured that I will be discussing other information from other countries as well as those that I have mentioned above.

“For information about the SSI disability program for adults, see Supplemental Security Income (SSI) (Publication No. 05-11000). For information about disability programs for children, refer to Benefits For Children With Disabilities (Publication No. 05-10026).”

    I want to apply for social security retirement benefits. Do I have to apply in person? If so, is there an office in Los Angeles, California? What documents do I need?
