 Disability Guide

This Disability Guide is here to help you learn how the Social Security Disability system works. To win your case, you need to understand what you must show in order to prove that you are disabled. The discussions under each of the topics in the menu at left provide answers to a variety of questions that you may encounter as you explore your options or pursue your disability claim. You will also find material important to claimants residing in the St. Louis area, including Eastern Missouri and Southern Illinois.

If you’re arriving here with a specific question in mind, review the topics at left or make a search. If not, you may want to begin with the first topic – Social Security Disability: An Overview.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you find this material useful.
