From the facts you describe, your husband is still working. Depending on his income, he won't be able to apply until he stops working.

I would recommend that you find an AV-rated lawyer in your area that is willing to work with you before you stop working and before you apply. Use the "Find a Lawyer" icon in the upper left of this page to assist you.

It is important to have this planned out very carefully. If finding a local attorney doesn't work out, you can apply on your own online or go to your local office and apply.  Good luck to 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.
