If you have been denied social security disability benefits, it is not the end of the road for your case. The fact is, approximately 70% of social security disability claims are denied at the initial application. But MANY first-time denials are eventually approved with the proper legal assistance, with up to 50% of all cases getting approved. Appeals of Social Security Disability denials actually have a higher percentage success rate 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 your disability actually began. If the Social Security Administration approves the disability for June, the first check would be paid for December. This is known as the five month waiting period, and is standard. If you would like to know more about the five month waiting period, or anything else with your claim, get in touch with your Texas social security disability lawyer.
What to expect for regular benefit payments
Your average lifetime earnings will determine how much you will be paid monthly if your social security disability claim is approved. 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. There are many calculations that go into figuring out this amount. For 2019, the maximum monthly payment is approximately $2,800, with the average amount coming in at approximately $1,200.
