How long does it take to apply and qualify for Social Security Disability?

You can apply for Social Security Disability in three ways. You can apply online at WWW.SocialSecurity.Gov, you can call 800-772-1213, or you can go to a local Social Security office in person. You will need to provide documents, such as a birth certificate, tax forms, and medical records, or Social Security will need to get them. You will also need to schedule an in-person or phone interview, which will probably take about an hour. From the time you apply to the time you get accepted or denied can take anywhere from a couple of months to eight months. If you are denied, you have a right to request a hearing.
