How Long Does it Take to File for SSDI?

The process of completing the application is not lengthy, but you must provide the documents they require or you will risk getting denied. The approval process can take some time, sometimes months, to review your claim and provide a decision. Therefore, it is best to file as soon as possible and make certain that your application is complete so you won’t automatically get denied.

What Should I Do If I Get Denied?

Thousands of people who deserve SSDI get denied after they submit a claim. If they deny your claim, they will send you a letter indicating the reason. You can appeal the decision if you do so within the allotted time limit, which is generally 60 days.
