- DISABILITY CLAIM FAQ
It seems to be common knowledge that applying for Social Security Disability (“SSD”), and then waiting for a decision, is a very slow process. On a daily basis, clients ask us how are they supposed to support themselves and pay their bills while waiting for a decision from Social Security? Unfortunately, there is no good answer. The more you work, the more Social Security (“SS”) will argue that you are not disabled. But even more heart wrenching, and less commonly known, is the amount of people that pass away while awaiting a decision from SSD. Over the years, we have had clients pass away while waiting for their hearing or decision. As we work very closely with our clients, and develop a relationship with them and some of their family members, it is very difficult and frustrating for us when a client passes away.
The system is broken in so many ways, and has only gotten worse over the last several years. We have no choice, but to continue to wait and hope that SS gets the help and funding it needs, so people’s lives are not ruined while they wait for a decision from SS.Previous Next
