How Long Does it Take to Process My Initial Claim?

POSTED BY devind . February 7, 2017

So, you filed your initial application for your SSD or SSi, and the next question you are likely asking is: “How long will it take to receive a decision from this application?” Unfortunately, there is not a quick response after you apply.

Once you’ve submitted your initial application with all the appropriate paperwork, the SSA will contact your doctors and get additional information about your medical abilities. It takes 3-5 months for the SSA to process your initial claim. The great majority of initial claims are denied Due to the fact that so many claims are denied at this initial step, a lot of people get discouraged, and do not appeal the decision.

If you are denied, give our office a call for a free phone consultation. Our attorneys and staff have the knowledge and expertise to help you with your claim. Call us today: 1-877-526-3457
