Am I eligible to receive SSD benefits? To qualify for SSD benefits, you must have worked in jobs covered by Social Security for at least 10 years. You must also have a disability as defined by the Social Security Association (SSA) and be considered unable to work.
If I recover enough to return to work, can I still receive SSD benefits? Yes. However, there are special rules that must be followed to help preserve your benefits. Our teams of dedicated professionals are ready to guide you through the process.
Do I have to wait before I can start collecting my benefits? Yes. A five-month waiting period is required before your benefits will begin. Benefits will begin in the sixth full month after the date your disability began. Benefits may be paid for up to one year before your application if you were disabled during that time.
How long does it take to reach a decision? It depends. Several factors may play into the decision of the Social Security Administration, including the type of disability, the amount and quality of supporting medical evidence, and whether your application was completed correctly. Having a team of knowledgeable professionals on your side can help make this process as smooth and as efficient as possible.
