Attorneys Helping You Understand The Disability Process

Though there are several requirements that accompany applying for Social Security Disability benefits, it is important to not delay in doing so if you suffer a disability. The longer you delay in applying for disability, the longer you will need to wait in receiving benefits.

At Midwest Disability, P.A., we work toward ensuring you receive the disability benefits you need. We will take immediate action concerning your claim to ensure that any delay in receiving your benefits is minimal. With over 50 years of experience helping disabled individuals, our attorneys understand what steps to take to receive a prompt response from the Social Security Administration (SSA).

How Long Is The Process?

If you suffer from a medical condition that you expect will prevent you from working for at least 12 months, you should consider applying for disability. A determination regarding your Social Security Disability may not take place for three to five months following your application. The SSA will then likely institute a waiting period following a determination of when the disability began. In the event you are applying for Supplemental Security Income (SSI), the SSA will pay such benefits for the first full month you file your claim, or, if later, on the date you are eligible for SSI. To prevent delays, it's important to submit your application as early as possible.

Whatever benefit you are applying for, the process is complex. There are no guarantees that your application will be accepted. In fact, more than 70 percent of disability applications face rejection. It is for this reason that you will require the professional advice of an experienced Social Security Disability lawyer to provide assistance. We will review and organize your medical records for submission. This includes documenting that you have been following your doctor's orders and addressing any issues that could lead to denial of your claim.
