When Will My Social Security Disability Benefits Begin?

  • By: Tony Adderley

The Social Security Administration will begin the process of reviewing your application for benefits. This process could take months, or even longer. Even after the application is approved, and even after the Social Security Administration determines that you indeed qualify for benefits, you can’t expect to receive your benefits check immediately. You will receive your first benefit check in the sixth month after the date when the agency determines that your disability began.

For example, if your disability began on January 1, then your first disability benefit check will arrive on July 1. This waiting period may be mandatory for all applicants.

The process of getting an approval of a claim can take a very long time. The process can also be long and frustrating. Take help from a Los Angeles Social Security disability benefits lawyer before filing a claim.

Also remember that most claims are rejected on the first attempt. You can, however, appeal the rejection of your claim. For help with appealing a claim, schedule a consultation with a Los Angeles Social Security disability benefits lawyer.

The process of filing a claim or appealing a claim is long, and requires significant documentation and evidence of your disability. A lawyer can advise you about how what kind of evidence you need to provide about your disability in order to qualify for benefits. Remember, the success of your claim can depend on the type of evidence and the solidity of the evidence that you provide in support of your claim.
