The inability to work can be a very stressful situation for people of any age. Whether you can no longer work due to an illness or an injury, finding a way to stay financially stable can be difficult. One way you can still receive compensation is to file for disability benefits in Indiana. Here are some tips for filing so you can receive compensation.
Before you file for disability, you should download and review the Adult Disability Checklist published by the Social Security Administration (SSA). This checklist is found on their website. The checklist will provide guidance on what information you will need in order to file for disability depending on the disability you have.
Once you review the checklist, you can complete the Disability Benefit Application, which can also be found on the SSA website. When you file for disability benefits, you will need to provide your name, Social Security number, date of birth, the same information of your spouse, names and birth dates of children and banking information for electronic deposit.
You will also need to provide information about your medical condition, contact info for your doctor and list of medications you have been prescribed for your condition. The application will also ask you for employment information regarding your income last year, contact information for your most recent employer, a copy of a Social Security Statement and a list of jobs you held prior to getting sick.
