Time is Money When People Wait Too Long to Apply for Social Security Disability Benefits
Date:12/12/2008

lity is long term.

"There are a number of ways to confirm that a disability is long term, including a doctor's diagnosis and medical evidence of a chronic condition or disease, and terminal illness," he said. "You don't need to be disabled and unable to work for a year before you apply."

Another reason people may stall is that they already have private long-term disability insurance coverage. "There are a number of benefits to applying for SSDI, even if you have private LTD coverage," Mr. Swierczek said. "One of those is that it freezes your earnings record for the years you are disabled, which can protect your Social Security retirement benefits." More information on the benefits of SSDI can be found in the section, "Why You Want SSDI," on Allsup.com.

Another reason for the confusion is the five-month waiting period for receiving SSDI cash benefits.

As Mr. Swierczek explains, "If the Social Security Administration approves SSDI benefits for you, there is an automatic five full months waiting period required before you can in fact receive those cash benefits. But this five-month waiting period is just for receiving the benefits. It does not determine when you can apply."

Another time element that can confuse SSDI applicants is the 12-month time limitation for receiving retroactive benefits. This is important and carries risks of lost income for someone who waits a long time to apply for disability benefits.

Here's an example to illustrate:
