We meet with many people before they even apply for disability. They have questions about quitting work, the time they will be without income, and how the process works. I am always happy to sit down and discuss the details– even if you have not yet applied for disability.

When it is time to apply for disability, you have a few options. You can apply online through the Social Security Administration here.

You can also apply by phone: By phone – Call us at 1-800-772-1213 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. If you are deaf or hard of hearing, you can call us at TTY 1-800-325-0778.
