It used to be that to file for disability – Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) – the claimant needed to call the Social Security Administration (SSA), request an application, and then wait to be interviewed.

If you apply online, it may also be a good idea to call your Social Security office simply to confirm that your electronic application was actually received. Not everything that is transmitted online actually arrives at its proper destination.
Completing the necessary steps to file for disability is only the beginning. Getting an initial answer on a Social Security or SSI disability claim can easily take a number of months. And at the end of that time, most claimants will find that their case for benefits has been denied. Nationwide, seven out of 10 disability cases are turned down at the initial application stage. What this means for most disability claimants is that they will need to file one or more appeals for SSI or SSDI. The majority of claims will need to be heard by an Administrative Law Judge, which can take, on average, 1-2 years after you initially file your application.
