Number of Applicants For SSDI Jumps
Posted in: Application Process on August 3rd, 2011

If you’re looking to apply for Social Security Disability Insurance, you’re not alone.  While it’s generally considered a good thing to find safety in numbers, the fact of the matter is there are so many people applying for Social Security Disability Insurance, it is difficult for everybody to receive their share of the wealth should they require it.

According to research done by Allsup, the second quarter of 2011 saw the number of people with disabilities and thus unable to work and applying for Social Security Disability Insurance jump to 760,621, which is up nearly six percent when compared to the first quarter of the year.  In June of 2011 alone, the number of applicants jumped to 287,287, which has contributed significantly to the increase of Social Security Disability Insurance applications in the second quarter.  This number represents a whopping twenty seven percent increase as compared to June of 2010.

To make matters worse, there are currently a reported 1.8 million Social Security Disability Insurance claims pending in the Social Security review process, and the average wait time is between 500 to 700 days for applicants to begin receiving benefits.

What Can Be Done?

In the short term?  Not much.  Be sure to get your application in for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits as early as possible so that you have a great chance of getting your benefits faster!  Securing disability benefits is no easy task, and many people find that having a disability lawyer help them through the processes can be a boon, but be sure to measure your financial ability to support such a move before going through with it.
