If you have been denied social security disability benefits, it is imperative that you do not give up on your case. Approximately 70% of social security disability claims are denied the first time. But MANY first-time denials are eventually approved with the proper legal assistance. In fact, the appeals success rate is higher than first-time applications.
What to expect if the claim is approved
Once your application is approved, you will be paid in the sixth month after the date that the disability began. If the Social Security Administration approves the disability for April, the first check would be paid for October. This is known as the five month waiting period, and is standard.
What to expect for regular benefit payments
The amount that you will be paid once benefits are approved is based on your average lifetime earnings. This will also include retirement estimates and survivor benefits that you or your family may be eligible for, among other factors that may be associated with your situation.
