How To Apply For Disability Benefits in Michigan

If you are disabled and need help paying for the expenses of daily life, you may have questions about how to apply for the benefits you need.

Read on to learn the answers to your questions.

Filing for Disability in Michigan

If you need to find the Social Security field office, Disability Determinations Services office, or an Office of Disability Adjudication and Review closest to you, click here.

You have a few options for applying for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). You may apply online, over the phone, or in-person.

  • Online: Use the SSA’s website at ssa.gov.
  • Phone: Call the SSA’s toll-free number AT 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778)
  • In-person: Go to your closest Social Security field office, which you can find here.

Appeal Hearings

There are 70 administrative law judges making decisions in court regarding Social Security Disability disputes throughout the seven hearing offices in the state. The Flint Office has the greatest approval rate (56%) out of all the hearing offices in Michigan.

Michigan’s hearing process is more effective than most other states. We have reduced waiting periods, reduced processing periods, greater approval rates, and fewer cases dismissed.

Vocational Rehabilitation Services

If you’re disabled and wish to return to work but don’t know where to start, Vocational Rehabilitation Services can help. This program assists disabled Michiganders prepare, obtain, and retain employment.

If you’re not already on Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), you’ll need to apply for Vocational Rehabilitation Services at your local office. To find your nearest office, click here.
