Consulting with a Social Security disability attorney in Dunn can help you better understand your rights when it comes to disability benefits.
An attorney can establish:
- if you qualify;
- what documentation will be necessary to prove your disability;
- how much in disability benefits you can expect;
- when they will begin.
Although it would be great to start receiving disability benefits immediately, the law is that before this can happen, you must be disabled for at least five months. So this means most payments start in the sixth month of disability.
However, keep in mind that the process of obtaining disability benefits can take several months or longer. It may even take a couple of years, especially if your initial claim is denied.
So it is more than likely that if you are approved for benefits, by the time this happens, those five months will have passed. You may qualify for retroactive payments for months before you filed the application.
One of the online tools that Social Security Administration provides is benefit calculators. These can help give you an idea on how much your monthly disability benefits will be.
