The first step of the review process involves Social Security notifying you that your case will be evaluated after which there is a requirement to turn in required documentation. More information on this documentation will be provided in part 5 and 6 of this series. Communication with the local Social Security office or an SSDI attorney can increase the success rate of an application.

After you submit the required documentation and have any needed tests completed, the final steps of the review process can be carried out.
