You will have to find out if you qualify for the disability program from the federal government. You can do this by answering the questions on the federal government benefit web site at http://www.govbenefits.gov
Answer the questions on the government benefit site, and fill out the part specifically that says you are interested in getting disability benefits. There are a numerous amount of disabilities that you can qualify for, so be sure to be as detailed as possible in the disability and personal information you fill out.
Once it looks like you may qualify, the web site will send you information on where you can call to setup an interview. Often you will be required to bring in information from a licensed physician or medical doctor in order to get on the disability benefit.
Have the interview and bring all the necessary information with you. Once you are approved, you will begin to receive disability.
