How Can I Apply for Social Security Disability Benefits or SSI During the COVID-19 Pandemic?

Having problems applying for Social Security Disability Benefits because all local Social Security offices have been closed to the public for in-person services since March 17, 2020 and there has not been any indication as to when they will reopen?  Since that time, individuals have instead had to interact with the Social Security Administration on the telephone, through their attorney, or online because they cannot meet with Social Security employees in person.  With Social Security employees working from home, it has made it harder for individuals to conduct their business with Social Security and get their questions answered.  It has been harder to apply for social security benefits as well.  Instead of simply going to the nearest Social Security office and submitting an application for benefits with the help of a Social Security employee, people often have to complete multiple steps over multiple days to complete their application.
