When to apply for long term disability

After an injury, many people wonder when is the right time to apply for long-term disability benefits.

It is important to apply for long term disability benefits as soon as possible after an injury. This is because it can take months, and in some cases, even years, to complete the entire process and begin receiving payments. Additionally, if your claim is denied, you may be forced to wait even longer as your appeal is processed. When applying for long-term disability benefits, you may apply either through Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or through Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
