A person may be able to file for Social Security disability payments if they are unable to work for at least twelve months. Extensive medical records must be provided as evidence. The paperwork and the close reviews mean the process for securing Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) payments is complicated and long. The majority of SSDI claims are denied the first time they're made.

The entire time it takes from filing an SSDI claim to receiving payments can take six months or two years. During this time you may only be able to work a few hours per week and not make enough money to cover your living expenses or family costs. Medical bills may pile up during this time too. Trying to process an SSDI claim by yourself makes the process even longer. Contact an SSDI attorney at Brent Adams & Associates 800.849.5931 to learn more about your disability claim.
