Your father's Agent Orange exposure is unlikely to affect any claim you may have.  To be disabled, you must be unable to work (8 hours/day - 5 days/week) for 12 months or more due to a medical condition (physical and/or mental).

In order to prove your disability, ongoing medical treatment will be necessary to verify your claim.  To apply, go to https://secure.ssa.gov/iCLM/dib or go to your local office in person https://secure.ssa.gov/ICON/main.jsp or call Toll-Free: 1-800-772-1213.  It is free to apply.

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.
