You can apply in person, by phone, or online.

To apply online: http://ssa.gov/pgm/disability.htm make sure to print receipts and copies of pages you submit online.

By phone or In person: go to https://secure.ssa.gov/apps6z/FOLO/fo001.jsp and enter your zip code.

SSDI benefits are calculated based on your earnings (wages) history.  As long as it is SSDI and not SSI benefits that you seek, your husband's monthly SSDI benefits will not impact yours.

No attorney-client relationship has been established because of the information provided. Seek local counsel to address your particular facts. MJHJ

Social Security Disability
If you're suffering from a disability that prevents you from working, you may be entitled to benefits under Social Security disability insurance (SSD or SSDI). Social Security disability attorneys can work with you to file your application for benefits. Because the Social Security Administration routinely denies the majority of initial claims, your SSD lawyers can also prepare for your hearing before an administrative law judge, attend all hearings, advocate on your behalf and file an appeal if your application has been denied. Hire an SSDI law firm as soon as you need to apply for SSDI. The faster your application is approved, the more quickly you will begin to receive benefits.
