Social Security Disability Application Forms
Quickly access the forms to file a Social Security Disability or Supplemental Security Income claim for a disabled adult. Preview them even if you file online.
Even if you plan to file online, it is advisable to write out a rough draft on paper forms so that you don’t forget to include important information when working online or when you are in a Social Security office filing in person. The base application for Social Security Disability (SSDI) is the SSA-16-BK, while the base application form for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) disability is the SSA-8000-BK. Base application forms for disabled widows and adult children are the SSA-10 and SSA-4-BK, respectively. These last two forms can be found in the SSA Retirement/Dependent/Survivor Forms section of this website.
Whether you are applying for Social Security Disability as a disabled worker, a disabled widow, a disabled adult child or for SSI as an adult, in addition to the SSA-16-BK or SSA-8000-BK, you also have to complete an SSA-3368 to provide medical information, an SSA-3369 to provide your work history, and an SSA-827, which allows the Social Security Administration to collect information for the purpose of determining your eligibility. You may also want to use some of the other forms available in this grouping of forms to submit additional information about your limitations or special accommodations.
