How Long Before You Receive Your Benefits?
Claim Waiting Times
One of the most pressing questions for Social Security Disability insurance applicants is "How long will I have to wait to get benefits?" First off, the
Social Security Administration has instituted an automatic 5-month initial waiting period to ensure only those with
long-term disabilities receive benefits. After that period, it generally comes down to the efficiency of the local SSA offices, as well as the amount of applications they receive. In the majority of SSDI cases, the applicant must appear before an administrative law judge before being awarded disability. In Nevada, the average wait time for a
disability hearing before a judge is 443 days.
