All in all, every case is different. Applicants with severe or life-limiting illnesses may get approved for benefits in a matter of weeks. Others who meet specific criteria for a condition may be approved with a couple of months. But in general, most people who apply to get SSD will wait anywhere from 12 months to over 2 years for a final disability determination.
Determining whether you qualify for Social Security Disability benefits can be a bit confusing.
The SSA provides a manual that lists all impairments, both physical and mental, that qualify for benefits to an individual who meets the specified criteria.
Before going to court, it is important that you make preparations ahead of time to make all your efforts worth it and to ensure your SSD approval.
Keep in mind that it is not you, but the SSA, that needs to approve your filing. Your medical documentation has to be sufficient in their point of view.
