  1. According to Social security administration: To apply for adult disability SSI payments:

    Start the Disability process at our Apply Online for Disability Benefits page. Although this is not a SSI application, we can use most of the information you provide to start the disability process. Once you finish the online process, a Social Security representative will contact you for any additional information needed for the SSI application; or
    Schedule an appointment with your local office to complete the application process.
    To apply for child disability SSI payments:

    Complete our online Child Disability Report; and
    Schedule an appointment with your local office to complete the application process.
    To schedule an appointment with your local office, call 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) between 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday.

  2. I am interested in getting a supplement of social security as I am permantely disabled can I apply online or on the phone & how long does this take thank you Cindy C.

  3. Ya. It takes much longer than 90 days. You will probably have to go on government assistance until your SSI comes available.

  4. According to the Social Security Administration Website; If you applied for benefits, you can check the status of your application online.

    Your application status shows:

    The date we received your application;
    Any requests for additional documents;
    The address of the office processing your application; and
    If a decision has been made.
    If you receive an error, it may be because:

    You entered an incorrect Social Security number or confirmation number;
    You did not complete the application; or
    We made a final decision on your application more than four months ago.
    If anything prevents you from checking your application status online, call us at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) between 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday.
