Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to be permanently disabled to get Social Security disability benefits?

No. If you have a condition that will prevent you from holding a full-time job for a minimum of 1 year or longer you are qualified to file a disability claim.

What is the definition of “disability” according to the Social Security Administration (SSA)?

The SSA requires that you meet the following criteria to be considered for disability:
– You can no longer work at your previous occupation
– You cannot adjust to other occupations because of your medical condition(s)
– Your medical condition(s) are expected to last for a minimum of 1 year

Can I work while waiting for the determination of my Social Security disability claim?

In most cases you cannot receive Social Security disability benefits if you are working and making more than $1,220 (gross/pre-tax) per month in 2019 ($2,040 if you are blind). There are many exceptions to this rule though, so we recommend you complete this free evaluation to see what you may qualify to receive.

Can I apply for Social Security Disability if I already am receiving Military Retirement or VA Disability benefits?

The Social Security Administration is a completely separate entity from the Department of Veteran Affairs, so it is possible to receive benefits from both organizations at the same time. Please complete this free evaluation to determine your eligibility.

How long do I have to wait to file for Social Security disability?

There is no required wait time. You can file as soon as your medical condition has stopped you from being able to work a full-time job. Waiting to file your claim could result in losing thousands in earned benefits.

Can I apply for Social Security disability benefits if I have a pending worker’s compensation claim?

Yes. You do not have to wait for your worker’s compensation claim to be complete to file for Social Security disability. It is common to file for both benefits around the same time.

How much will I receive if I am approved for Social Security disability?

If your application is for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) the amount you receive will be dependent on your earnings while you were employed. If your application is for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) the benefits you receive will be based on the current federal benefit rate as well as any other income and/or benefits you receive. We recommend you complete this free evaluation to determine an estimated monthly amount you would be entitled to receive.

How many years of back pay can I receive from Social Security Disability?

The amount of money that you receive depends on a variety of factors, but the national average for disability benefits is approximately $1200/month. Once you are approved you can expect to receive up to 12 months of back pay for the months prior to your date of application.

How long will it take to get a hearing on a Social Security disability claim?

The time varies state to state. Some offices will give hearings in 12 months or less, and others can take 18-24 months.

What happens if my claim for Social Security disability benefits is denied?

If your claim is denied and you have not yet returned to work you should appeal the decision. In most states this is done by filing a “request for reconsideration”. Having an expert team help during this process may be critical to the success of your appeal. Complete this free evaluation to see if you qualify for no upfront cost assistance.
