    you can apply for SSD/SSI on line.  Get copies of all your medical records and fax them in.  Keep track of your case online.  When you are assigned to an analyst, make sure all those records were scanned into your file.  The field offices do all SSA cases, retirement, survivor benefits, its a paperwork nightmare.  The sooner your analyst has your records the better.  Call your analyst at least once every 2 weeks.  Last week I got a call from a claimant's psych nurse practitioner, and it reminded me I had enough to close her claim quickly, so I did.  [We try to close the oldest cases 1st, but if I get the chance to close any case quickly, I will do it.]  Kos mail me if you hit any snags.  I won't be able to access your case or anything, but sometimes its just a matter of knowing the ropes.
