How Do I Apply For Disability?

While we sometimes help clients with their initial applications for disability benefits, most of our work happens after a claim is denied. Attorney Gregory Peterson excels at reversing denial in Social Security hearings and Requests for Reconsideration.

For this reason, many of our clients are able to begin the process of applying for disability on their own. For additional information, we encourage you to contact our office in Des Moines, Iowa, at 515-612-7219.

How Do I Apply For Disability?

The first stage of the disability process involves speaking to the Social Security Administration (SSA) and giving them information about your work history, impairment and medical treatment.

This information can be given over the phone to the SSA. Our experienced staff can tell you what to expect and what specific information you will need.

It is important to be as thorough and accurate as possible during this step to avoid any inconsistencies in your file. Presenting a strong, confident case is a first step in securing benefits. Once your file is opened we will send you the paperwork necessary to start your representation.
