On Behalf of | Mar 27, 2024 | Social Security Disability

Many people are facing long wait times for their Social Security Disability Insurance applications in Missouri.

Fortunately, there are steps you can take to help the Social Security Administration process your application faster.

Gather your documents

Ensure you have all necessary documents ready. This includes medical records, employment history and any other relevant documentation that supports your disability claim. By having these documents organized and readily available, you can give the SSA the information it needs to make a decision.

Complete the application fully and accurately

Any missing or incorrect information can delay the processing of your application. Take your time to fill out all sections correctly. Double-check for accuracy before submitting your application to the SSA. The SSA offers a Disability Starter Kit with a fact sheet, checklist and worksheet. Reviewing it should be helpful.

Submit your application online

The SSA offers an online application portal. By using this convenient option, you can expedite the processing of your application. Mailing your application can result in delays that do not necessarily occur with online applications.

Follow up regularly

Follow up regularly with the SSA to check on the status of your claim. You can do this by calling the SSA’s toll-free number or visiting your local SSA office in person. By staying proactive and maintaining regular communication with the SSA, you can check that your application is progressing as quickly as possible.

By taking these proactive steps, you may be able to reduce your wait time and get assistance sooner.
