How long will it take for my Social Security application to be processed?
According to the SSA, the time it takes to receive a response about a disability claim varies from case to case, but at the very least it will take several months if not a few years. Retaining a social security lawyer can help ensure that the government responds as quickly as possible.
Will receiving workers' compensation or other public disability benefits affect my social security disability benefits?
Potentially. Depending on the amount of workers' compensation or other benefits you are granted, the SSA may reduce your social security disability benefits.
What happens when I reach retirement age?
If you are awarded Social Security disability benefits, you will receive those benefits until you reach retirement age, at which point you will receive social security retirement benefits. You cannot receive both kinds of benefits at the same time.
