Qualifying for Social Security Disability benefits can take up to two years, sometimes longer in appeals. Although benefits are awarded retroactively if you get a favorable decision, the long and uncertain wait can feel unbearable.JP Law is sensitive to the frustrations and hardships of applying for SSD or SSI, especially if you have no savings, income or insurance. Unfortunately, we can’t do much to speed up the Social Security Administration or move your case to the front of the line. But we can offer advice and support during the SSD claims process and help you locate resources to bridge the gap until you receive disability benefits.
Social Security Disability provides benefits back to the date of your application (but not all the way back to the onset of your condition). In the meantime, you may be struggling emotionally and financially. Our compassionate lawyers are not only concerned with the legal issues — we try to help the whole person. We are available to provide what assistance we can or point you to resources:
