There are several Social Security Administration Offices in the Greater Detroit area. One is located at 3400 Conner St. in downtown Detroit and another is at 60 E Grand in nearby Highland Park.
The Social Security Administration has offices all over the country. They provide valuable services to people who are retiring, disabled, applying for SSI benefits, applying for Medicare and much, much more. If you reside in Detroit, MI. and cannot work due to illness, an injury or other reason for a time period of at least a year then you may be eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
If you want to determine if you are eligible for Social Security benefits of some type you can visit the Social Security Administration Office in Detroit, Michigan or call them on their toll free number (800) 772-1213. But you must have a variety of forms and information available to make the process go more smoothly.
For example, you will need to have extensive documentation of your ailment including the type of physical, mental, social or emotional issue that prevents you from working. You will also need a complete work history with earnings.
Completing the application online or at the city of Detroit, Mi. SSA is only the first step. But it is an important one. You might be well advised to seek the assistance of an attorney who has an expertise in this field of law. Unfortunately, there are many times that applications for benefits are denied and one reason for this is the package may be incomplete. Too, the application may have been filled out incorrectly as well.
Once the application has been filed in the Detroit office of the Social Security Administration it will be forwarded to the Disability Determination Services (DDS) office which is a state agency with the Michigan Department of Health Services. Here your application will be reviewed by a claims examiner who will make an initial determination about whether you qualify for benefits or not.
Do not be surprised that it will take up to three or even four months to find out if your application has been approved. If not, you can always file an appeal.
