Social Security Disability (SSD) is a program that is meant to help injured workers support themselves if they are injured or ill and unable to return to work. This doesn't mean that they will get these benefits quickly. In fact, many people have to fight hard to get the benefits that they should receive. This can be difficult because they might not have sufficient or even any income at all during the process.
We are here to help you learn about your rights when you need to get the benefits that you've paid into during your working career. We know that you are likely going need to get the application process over with as soon as possible. Your bills are likely going to pile up while you are waiting for this to go through. This can make it difficult to think about your finances.
There are often ways that you might be able to speed things up so that you can get what you need. Your case must meet specific requirements. We can't ensure that your case will meet these requirements, but we can review it to see if we can do anything to speed things up.
We realize that you need to have your case be approved as quickly as possible. While we can't force it through, we can work with you to make sure that you have everything in order for your case to move forward. Remember that there are specific processes and time limits if you are going to appeal a decision you don't feel is correct.
