social security disability videos There is a lot of written information in this blog and on other websites surrounding the Social Security Disability claims process. But my experience as a Southern Illinois Disability attorney is that some people prefer to learn by watching rather than reading.  Luckily, the Social Security Administration has produced a series of educational videos to walk you through the process.  You can watch them here!

As a Southern Illinois Social Security Disability representative, I believe these videos constitute a helpful crash course in understanding the Social Security Disability claims process. 

Part 1: Introduction to the Disability Process

In part one, follow one individual through the Social Security disability claims process as he tries to get his claim approved.

Part 2: Filing a Disability Claim

Part two explains the process of filling out an application for Social Security Disability benefits.

Part 3: Medical Evidence

Part 4: Quality Review

To ensure that everyone at the Social Security Administration is following quality guidelines, claims are chosen at random to be reviewed by the Office of Quality Performance.

Part 5: Appeals

Part five walks you through the appeals process if your Social Security Disability claim is denied.

Part 6: The Appeals Council

The appeals council is the last administrative decisional level in the Social Security Disability claims process.  This video explains how it works.

Part 7: End of a Claim

This video explains the Social Security Administration's payment centers and other information relating to the end of a Social Security Disability claim.
