My question is about filing for SSD. I have read that you can file either by going directly to a social security office, or by calling an office, or even applying on line. So which way would any of you recommend, or what is the best way? I have to do it, but just trying to find out what my first step should be, whether it be to collect all necessary medical records first and then apply with them in hand, or to apply and let them do the leg work. I've also read about having my doctors fill out the RFC form. did any of you do that, and if so at what stage did you have it done? I know this is only the beginning of a long process :< Thanks for any thoughts and suggestions.
