According to the Social Security Administration’s website, it takes three to five months for a decision to be reached on a disability claim. The SSA lists these factors that determine the wait time:
- The nature of your disability.
- How quickly SSA obtains medical evidence from your doctor or other medical sources.
- Whether it is necessary to send you for a medical examination to obtain evidence to support your claim.
- Whether your claim is randomly selected for quality assurance review of the decision.
However, the judgment regarding your Social Security Disability claim often can take much longer than just a few months. Because so many people are seeking benefits, the SSA has a backlog of applications.
This is why the best thing you can do to ensure that your claim is processed as quickly as possible is to hire a lawyer. An experienced Social Security Disability attorney will make sure that every aspect of your claim is handled correctly.
