The Servant Center has a team of Disability Specialists who assist individuals in applying for SSI/SSDI benefits. Most of its referrals come from Cone Health System, local emergency and transitional shelters. Once a referral is received, every effort is made to see the client within 2 business days. We often go to where the client is like a hospital or shelter. The Disability Specialist will collect medical and employment records and then will interview a client one to three times to obtain a comprehensive work and medical history and to collect information for a function assessment. The Disability Specialist will then complete and submit the application as the client’s representative.
