The amount of time it takes to successfully receive your social security disability benefits from the Social Security Administration depends on several factors.
If you have been diagnosed with a very serious and ultimately fatal disease that appears on the Social Security Administration’s List of Compassionate Allowances, your application for benefits will be fast-tracked. However, if your application is initially denied, you will need to go through the appeal process, which takes significantly longer.
Recently, the number of disability applications has been rising significantly and the SSA has been falling further and further behind in examining applications. But while the process may take a frustratingly long time in some cases, it is always worth the fight to get the Social Security Disability benefits that you rightfully deserve.
