More Frequently Asked Questions about Social Security Disability and SSI
Because social security disability and SSI are federally administered programs, they are standardized. In other words, if you need to apply for either type of benefit (note: SSA will determine which benefit program you may be eligible for), it makes no difference whether you file a claim in New York or California or Illinois or Texas or Florida or Ohio or New Jersey or Indiana or Michigan or Wisconsin or Pennsylvania...you get the point.
Unfortunately, however, despite the fact that SSD and SSI are standardized programs, the level of confusion that exists regarding the filing of applications and the filing of appeals is fairly immense.
This is another archive page for this blog and some of the posts may be helpful in answering either general or specific questions that you may have regarding obtaining disability benefits from the social security administration.
