We are responsible for determining the eligibility of Illinois citizens to receive benefits under Social Security's disability programs. These programs are Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
An individual's eligibility for disability benefits is based upon medical evidence and whether the disability is expected to last a minimum of 12 months or for the remainder of the person's life.
We provide services to 56 offices located in communities throughout the state. To find the nearest Social Security office, dial (800) 772-1213 and tell the service representative your city, state and zip code.
You can also go to the Social Security Administration's web site.
