If  medical records support conditions that you are disabled, you can apply for disability with the Social Security Administration.  You can move forward with your disablity applcation 

You can apply in person, by phone (1-800-772-1213), or online.  If you are denied, seek competent counsel by going to this link and finding someone near you.  Hire counsel now if you feel uncomfortable proceeding alone or due to your health are not up to the task.

Submit copies of what records you already have.  Give a complete list to SSA of your health care providders, clinics and hospitals and SSA will obtain them for you.

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.
