How Social Security Disability Benefits Work

One of the most important things to keep in mind is that benefits do not begin on the date that you were found disabled. There is a five-month waiting period before you can receive benefits. If you submit your application well after you were found disabled, you will only be eligible for 12 months worth of back benefits.

In other words, your benefits will begin on whichever date comes later, either 12 months before your date of application or five months after the date you were found disabled.

Ensuring that Our Clients Receive Everything they Are Entitled

The amount of benefits available varies from person to person. It is based on the wages you contributed to Social Security taxes and the number of credits you have earned over the years. In many cases, this can add up to thousands of dollars. Rest assured that we will take great care to make certain you receive everything you are entitled to.

  • You were so proactive and informative, you really did take away so much of my stress during the whole process.

    “I sincerely apologize for the delay! I truly thought I had already sent this off to almost 3 months ago! Thank goodness I had someone helping me clean and organize the apartment last week. She found your letter behind my bookcase. I would like to take this opportunity to once again thank you for your support and dedication throughout my case. You were a true blessing to me. You were so proactive and informative, you really did take away so much of my stress during the whole process. Just the fact that you returned a call so promptly was a very big deal to me. It let me know that I mattered to you, Sarah, and the firm. Thanks to the two of you I am finally settled in my own apartment and my mom was able to finally retire. So again, thank you from the depths of my heart for everything that you personally and your firm have done for me. You were true angels in my tie of need.”

  • They know what it takes to win. Thank you all so much!

    “Thank you so much for your help. I was denied twice by social security disability. They are the most diligent and wonderfully. Yes it takes a while to get a hearing. If it wasn't for the great staff and attorneys here, I would have never been approved for disability. It was the best Christmas gift i received. They know what it takes to win. Thank you all so much!”

  • Without Smolich & Smolich taking my case I would have never gotten my benefits!!!

    “Without Smolich & Smolich taking my case I would have never gotten my benefits!!! Rob Smolich took my case himself and was so helpful in every step of the way. I cant say anything negative about Smolich & Smolich. I had a lawyer before him and he was way more personable. His office took all the stress off my back and made me feel at ease during the time period of waiting. Have nothing but good things to say about this company. They are completely professional!!!!”
