HOW TO APPLY FOR SSD BENEFITS IN MISSISSIPPI
Any worker that has been injured on the job should apply for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits as soon as possible. You can apply for Mississippi SSD benefits by scheduling an appointment with a Social Security Administration (SSA) representative or by applying online.
You will be assigned a claims representative who will help you with any questions you may have about the application process. The representative will also handle the paperwork needed to submit your claim to Disability Determination Services (DDS), which will make an initial determination as to whether you are considered disabled under the SSA’s requirements.
Finally, the claims representative will determine the disability programs for which you may be eligible, as well as total amount you can receive based on your work history.
Before beginning the application process, we highly encourage you to speak with one of our Mississippi Social Security disability attorneys. We can help you navigate the complex process of filing for benefits and gathering the documents you need to submit a claim.
