When Should You Apply for SSD or SSI?

You should apply for Social Security Disability benefits or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) as soon as you believe you are disabled and are not working. You are not able to receive any benefits until you have filed your application, and the process can be quite time-consuming. To avoid prolonging financial hardship, file your application under the guidance of our Social Security Disability Specialist.

To qualify for Social Security disability benefits, your impairment or disability must be expected to last for a continuous period of at least 12 months. This does not mean you have to be out of work for 12 months.

When reviewing your application, Social Security Administration may also ask:

  • Are you currently working?
  • Do you have a severe impairment?
  • Do you meet the medical conditions that result in an automatic disability finding?
  • Can you perform your former work?
  • Can you perform other work?

Our in Dalton Social Security Disability attorneys at McMahan Law Firm, LLC can walk you through each step of the process and prepare you for any potential questions you may face in your unique circumstances. Don’t wait to get our counsel!
