MN Social Security Disability Attorneys| How do I Apply for Social Security Disability Benefits?

There are three ways in which you can apply for Social Security disability insurance benefits, including:

  •  You can apply online.
  • You can call the Social Security office at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY: 1-800-325-0778) and a representative can assist you with your application over the phone.

Whichever method you decide on, you need to fill out an application, including an Adult Disability Report.
