The first step is to go to www.ssa.gov and click on the disability tab.

The key to speeding up the process (and to providing a solid social security disability application that is less likely to be denied) is to gather all of the appropriate documents and materials you will need ahead of time.
It is very important that you gather the information you will need before starting the online social security application process.
First make a list of all of your Doctors that you have seen in the past from the point of when you addressed your disability. This list should include the name of the doctors, hospitals, clinics, where you visited that doctor and the date(s) you went to see the doctor. If you don’t remember the specific date(s) that is ok. But the more specific information that you provide to the social security administration, the more likely it is that they will in fact obtain your records from that facility and consider them in making their initial eligibility decision.
Second, make a list of all the medications you have been prescribed over the years from the point of onset of your disability. The best way is to gather all the prescription bottles you have; it should list the name, date, dose, and prescribing doctor.
Finally, make a list of all your current and previous employers from the past 15 years. This list should include the employers name, address and dates of employment.
Important documents you will need are: Tax return or W2s for last year and a blank check.
Once you have the following information ready to go, you can apply online.
Go to www.ssa.gov and click on the disability tab. You will see To Start Application Process on the right hand side of the page, mark on the appropriate option(s) and click Apply for Benefits.
