There are several ways to apply for a Social Security disability claim. The first is simply to go the Social Security District Office and file the claim in person. A claims representative will assist you.

The second way is to call Social Security at 1-800-772-1213 and they will arrange a telephone interview for you with your local office and all necessary forms will be mailed to you.

The entire process can be completed without having to go in person to the Social Security office. Applications can also be filed partially online per instructions on the Social Security web site: www.ssa.gov
