Social Security Disability Waiting Period

On Behalf of | Oct 9, 2013 | Social Security Disability

In order to obtain Title II Social Security Disability benefits, a disabled worker must have a physical and/or mental impairment expected to last for at least twelve months. For the first five months (“the waiting period”) of this twelve month period, the applicant is not paid benefits. However, there is the possibility that Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits may be payable during the waiting period in appropriate claims. It is often wise to obtain skilled counsel early in the disability application process to increase the possibility of benefits being awarded.  For more information, contact us today.
