Millions of people all across the country suffer debilitating injuries and illness that keep them from earning a living. An inability to work can be financially devastating for accident victims and their families. Fortunately, Social Security Disability benefits are available to people suffering from a variety of medical conditions and injuries.
If you are suffering from a long-term disability that keeps you from working, then you may be eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. In order to apply for benefits, you need to file an application for SSD with the Social Security Administration (SSA) as soon as possible. Social Security Disability claims take a long time to process (three to five months), so it is important to do whatever you can to strengthen your claim and get it approved quickly.
