Applying for Social Security Disability benefits can be a long and frustrating process.  


However, if you go into the application process prepared, it can reduce many of the road blocks you may encounter.  If you decide to take on this task alone or with an attorney, the Social Security Administration provides a useful checklist that will ensure you have all the necessary information to get started.  Gathering this information will certainly speed up the process and will allow any attorney to evaluate your case.
