Before you begin: it’s a good idea to discuss applying for disability benefits with your doctor or health care provider. Does your doctor have ideas about something you could try that would help you work longer? Do they agree it’s time for you to stop working? Have you ever described for your doctor exactly how your medical condition interferes with your work activities or daily routine? Since SSA looks at doctor records to decide if you are disabled, it’s important that your doctor or health care provider knows how your condition impacts your ability to work.

SSA - Getting started: on SSA’s website is a ‘Disability Starter Kit’ you can print to help you gather the information you’ll need when you apply for benefits for yourself or your child. This is a good way to organize what you’ll need. Here are the links in English and Spanish:

Adult Starter Kits - English          Child Starter Kits - English          Adult Starter Kits - Espanol          Child Starter Kits - Espanol

SSA - How do I apply? SSA has an online application for Title II disability benefits only. If you need to apply for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, or both, or aren’t sure, it’s best to let SSA help you with the applications, so you don’t overlook anything important. Call SSA’s national teleservice center at 1-800-772-1213 to make an appointment with your local office. You may ask for an in-office or telephone appointment and the teleservice center will schedule it for you. If you ask for a telephone appointment you must have minutes on your phone. Have the starter kit worksheet and checklist complete before your appointment so it'll go smoothly.

Free Prescription Medication: It’s hard to pay for needed medications if you aren’t working. Healthwell Foundation gives grants to help with copays and deductibles for medications and doctor visits. Most major pharmaceutical companies offer free or low cost prescription medication for those who qualify and complete an application. If you have access to the internet, put the phrase “free prescription medicine” in a search box, and look at the various programs. You’ll need to know which manufacturer makes your prescription. Follow the instructions to sign up for a monthly voucher. You may have to sign up for more than one program if you have multiple medications and they are made by different companies.

Free Health Care: if you hope to win a disability claim, it’s vitally important that you continue going to the doctor. You need to prove that your medical conditions continue to keep you from working. If you stop going to the doctor, SSA may assume you got better and no longer need any healthcare. How do you receive medical care without health insurance? There are free or low cost clinics in almost every county in North Carolina. Below are some free or low cost clinics in the counties Campbell Disability Center serves. If you know of any not listed here, or if there are any errors, please let us know.
