Social Security Online Application Process Revision
The online application process for SSA disability benefits has changed.  Beginning January 25, 2014, there is no longer an online “Adult Disability Report” but rather an SSA web page titled: “Apply Online for Disability Benefits.” The “Adult Disability Report” and “Filing for Disability Benefits” will no longer be separate websites. The goal of the changes to SSA’s website is to create a seamless pathway for online customers to file for disability benefits via a single access point. See p://www.socialsecurity.gov
