Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits can be a life-changer when you can’t work because of major health problems. The monthly checks keep you on steadier financial ground.
If you’re in the Washington, DC, area, with several states close together, you might wonder if there’s anything special you need to know about the process of applying for benefits in the District compared to Virginia or Maryland.
The main answer is pretty simple: Social Security Disability is a federal government program that follows the same procedures everywhere in the United States.
That said, there are small differences in how local Social Security offices function. On this page, we’ll look at three main points of difference:
- State supplements to Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits
- Which state agencies screen your initial application
- Benefits approval rates in different states
