How Long Do I Have to Wait for A Check After My Disability Claim Is Approved?

Gordon, Wolf & Carney April 17, 2020

Applying for Social Security disability benefits is an uncertain event for many people.  One of the most commonly asked questions is, “When will I receive my benefits?”  This is a surprisingly difficult question to answer.

Filing for disability seems like an endless waiting game. First, you have to wait for the decision whether you satisfy the SSA criteria for being disabled.  This is a process that take anywhere from a few months to a few years.  Even after you have been approved, you have to wait again until you receive the actual check in the mail or deposit into your bank account.  This can also take several months.

While no one, not even an experienced Social Security disability lawyer, can make SSA move quickly through the decision process, the lawyers at Gordon, Wolf & Carney can assist in completing and submitting the various forms and requests for information in a timely fashion to avoid unnecessary delays.  Even after you are approved for benefits, there are additional forms to complete before you can receive benefits. 

The Social Security disability lawyers at Gordon Wolf & Carney are the right people to contact when you need help obtaining Social Security disability benefits.
