What can I expect from the SSDI application process?

Question: About ten years ago, I was in a serious accident. I was hurt pretty bad--in fact they weren't sure I would make it. As a result of that accident, I've been struggling with anxiety and depression and although I have taken two separate leaves of absence from work, the time away is not helping. My counselor has suggested that I apply for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. What is the process? I have so little energy, I worry about being able to complete it.

Preparation Helpful for Social Security Disability Hearings

If an Arizona resident of average working age is incapable of engaging in gainful employment tasks due to a physical or mental impairment, he or she may be eligible for certain benefits. The process involved in filing for Social Security Disability benefits is often complex, and not every request is granted. If a particular claim is denied, it may be appealed, and if, upon reconsideration, a second denial is issued, a request for an administrative hearing may be filed.
