5-Step Disability Approval Process

Disability FlowchartOur friends at Caring Voice Coalition provide this simple guide to help understand the disability approval process.

In five steps, you'll understand what happens when you file for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), child's insurance benefits, and widow's/widower's benefits.

With this process, every case across the U.S. is analyzed in a uniform fashion, regardless of age, diagnosis or jurisdiction.
