How long do I have to apply?


Video Transcription

If you believe that you’re disabled and you want to file a claim for social security disability, it is important to apply as soon as possible. The reason for that is once you do the application, if you are applying for SSDI benefits, meaning you’ve worked five out of the last 10 years prior to your disability, they can go back for one year in order to pay you for your disability.

However, if you’re applying for SSI, meaning you have not worked five out of the last 10 years prior to your onset of disability, they only will start from the month in which you apply for benefits. So you could have been disabled for five years, but you are not going to qualify for those benefits if you have not done the application.
