Q: How long will it take to obtain long-term disability benefits?
A: There is no way to determine exactly how long it will take you for you to receive long term disability benefits or if you will get benefits at all. The application and approval process can take many months by itself. Additionally, many people are denied initially, forcing them to file an appeal or take further action. Thus, when you initially file a claim, there is no exact timeline that you can reference to help you determine how long it will take you to potentially get benefits. Generally, however, claims can be resolved within approximately 18 months.
