There are 3 ways to apply for disability benefits. You may apply online at the social security disability website, call 800-772-1213 to make an appointment to file your claim, or file your claim over the phone.

Your question depends upon what country you live in. In the USA, disability is paid by the Social Security Administration, see their website for application instructions. You may need an attorney to assist you with application because many people are turned down several times before being approved.
