Guiding You Along The Path To Social Security Benefits

To those in serious need, applying for Social Security benefits might seem like grasping for a critical lifeline to stay afloat. But what happens when that salvation keeps moving further out of reach, when "How long does it take to get benefits" turns into "Will I ever get benefits"?

We're honored to help people in Milmay, New Jersey, and the rest of the South Jersey improve their quality of life by pursuing financial assistance that truly makes a difference.

What Will Your SSI And SSDI Benefits Timeline Look Like?

There are many benefits programs that can help people whose disabilities stop them from being able to hold down gainful employment. Unfortunately, programs like Supplemental Security Income or SSI, and Social Security Disability Income or SSDI, include lots of hurdles that can delay your progress. For instance, you might not receive aid until you:

  • Complete an application
  • Go through a formal appeals process
  • Secure formal proof of your disability from a doctor or medical specialist

All told, it can potentially take two or three years before you receive benefits. Although it's still worthwhile to seek government assistance, failing to plan may mean you wait for some time. We can help you fulfill the obligations you need to satisfy in order to minimize the burdens associated with applying. While there's no guaranteed way to speed things up, we're dedicated to ensuring that applying for the benefits you deserve doesn't become a trying ordeal.

Vital Aid For Benefits Seekers

Setbacks aren't uncommon during the benefits process. Even if you do everything without flaw, the Social Security Administration (SSA) says that it may take as long as five months for officials to make an initial decision. Factors like whether you apply online, how you conduct yourself at interviews and other circumstances have an immense impact on your claim's future.

Some aspects of seeking SSI and SSDI benefits are beyond your control. We can help you navigate the ones that aren't. Depend on our aggressive representation and dedication to present your case in the right light.
