If I am injured or disabled when is the best time to apply to receive SSDI or SSI benefits?
Quickly Apply for SSDI or SSI Benefits
You should apply for disability benefits for all programs as soon as you become disabled because there is some waiting time to receive the benefits after filing your claim. SSDI does not pay benefits until six months after the onset of the disability while SSI pays benefits either the month after the claim is made or by the date you become eligible for SSI. Click on the "free case evaluation" link and a Social Security Attorney or advocate will contact you and help you get started on your case. We can help you file your forms completely and quickly, avoiding any unnecessary delays.
