If you have been injured or have an illness that prevents you from working for 12 months or morel it is to your benefit to apply for Social Security Disability. The application timing is important because the Social Security Administration calculates the back pay portion of the award back to the application date less 5 months.
That means that the sooner the application is made the greater the amount of back benefits that can be accrued if your claim is approved. It also means that the delay for medicare insurance is shortened.
If you know someone that has worked for their benefits and is now unable to work please contact us to help. The Social Security Disability process can be difficult and confusing.
