Important Links.

The links and information were compiled in April, 2014, and will not be routinely updated, so please be sure to check the government websites linked for the most up-to-date information.  If you find any changes or dead links, please feel free to report them using the Contact Form.

Please keep in mind that 60-70% of initial Social Security claims are rejected, and the process of obtaining benefits is likely to be a long journey.  Once the Disability Determination Services deny your initial claim, you will have the option to appeal the decision.
