I am having issues submitting my application for disability

This answer was rated:

I am having issues submitting my application for disability benefits. The form insists that my prior marriages must have lasted 10 years. Is there any way you can help?

MyVirtualCPA :

I realize you have a question about social security. My goal is to provide you with excellent service, and help you better understand your options.

MyVirtualCPA :

Are you applying for your own benefit, or a benefit off a spouse's record? Disability is typically your own personal benefit, and therefore your marital status or the length of your marriage would not impact your benefits/

MyVirtualCPA :

Perhaps you are filling out the wrong form?

MyVirtualCPA :

Could you please provide more details of what you are trying to accomplish

Customer:

I do not believe I am using the wrong form. I am applying for my own disability against my social security number.

MyVirtualCPA :

If that's the case, then your spousal records do not matter

MyVirtualCPA :

The length of your marriage will not impact your benefits

Customer:

I have been disabled since April 2012 since shoulder surgery and have been seeing a Pain Management specialist for about 3 years for my back issues.

Customer:

the form will not let me submit online. Should I go to the social security office to accomplish this?

MyVirtualCPA :

If you are having difficulties submitting your application online, then yes - it would be quickest to go to the office

MyVirtualCPA :

Otherwise you would call the 1-800 number and they could assist you there

Customer:

thank you so much you are a great help
