What is the first step to apply for social security disability?

1 Answers. Asked on Jan 22nd, 2013 on Social Security Disability - Kentucky
More details to this question:
II have chronic kidney disease stage 4 close to stage 5 and already have had a fistula put in my arm for dialysis. I have renal artery stenosis, multiple kidney polyps, diabetes type 2, high blood pressure, high cholesterol issues, asthma. I have also been injured on the job ad have permanent limitations so I can only work 4 hours a day, 5 days a week. The limitations prevent me from doing my letter carrier duties-no lifting more than 10 lbs, no lifting above shoulder height, no carrying a letter bag, no repetitive motion back and forth. Can I file for social security disability?

Do not delay.  Apply. 

You can apply in person, by phone, or online.  If you are denied, seek competent counsel by going to thislink 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.

I am sorry for the many health challenges you face, and strongly encourage you to pursue this claim.

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.
