Who should participate?

We are looking for adults who have recently applied for Social Security disability payments (SSDI or SSI). Your participation will help SSA ensure the survey is easy to complete.

What is Westat?

SSA is working with Westat, a research firm located in Rockville, Maryland, to conduct these interviews.

What is the interview like?

The interview will last about 90 minutes and will take place in person at Westat in Rockville, Maryland. We will first ask you to complete a paper survey booklet on disability application experiences and then ask about your thoughts on the survey. You will receive $70 for your time at the end of the interview.

Interested in participating?

If you’re interested, we’d love to hear from you! We’ve got a couple of screening questions first. Call the New Applicant Survey toll-free at 1-855-450-6464. If leaving a message, please only include your first name and a phone number beginning with the area code where you can be reached. Someone from Westat will return your call.
