Disabled? Don’t Delay Filing Your Claim

If you’re disabled due to an injury or illness, do not wait to file your claim for benefits through Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI).

Part of the reason you need to act now is because the date you first contact Social Security can affect when you are first entitled to benefits and how much of a back payment you are due once your claim is approved.

The other part of the reason is that the Social Security Administration (SSA) moves very slowly on disability claims. The SSA receives almost 2.7 million claims for benefits every year and each one of those must be carefully reviewed before it can be approved or denied.

A Mistake In Filing Can Have Serious Consequences

Only about a third of the claims SSA receives for benefits every year are approved. Since it takes almost two years to get a hearing before a Social Security judge in Florida, even a minor mistake in your application can have serious consequences on your life.
