Be prepared to hurry up and wait when you file for disability

On Behalf of | Jun 19, 2019 | social security disability |

For most people who file for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, the application process is lengthy and sometimes maddening. When you are dealing with a painful condition or a chronic illness, the last thing you want to do is fight the battle of the disability benefits process. We are here to help you with this legal fight so you can concentrate on your health.

Some individuals think that they can get these benefits quickly, but this usually isn’t the case unless your condition is listed on the Compassionate Allowances list. Because of this, you must prepare for the wait. It can be difficult to do this, especially if your health issue crept up on you without warning.

We know that it can be rather challenging to manage all the complications that come along with this process. In many cases, your initial application will be denied, but you have a choice to appeal the decision. This must be done quickly since the time limit is short. We can file your timely appeal, so be sure to contact us right away so we can get started.

If you have a condition that is preventing you from being able to work, you might qualify for Social Security Disability benefits. Remember that the sooner you get the application in, the less time you may have to wait before you can start receiving benefits. We are here to help you from that initial application through the appeals process. Our experienced and knowledgeable Social Security Disability attorneys have helped many Belleville residents qualify for the benefits to which they are entitled.
