A Fast Track To Benefits?
Posted in: Benefits on August 4th, 2011

benefits fast trackOne of the most infamous parts of the process of applying to either Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income is the fact that it takes a long time to start receiving payments.  Even in the event that somebody was able to apply and get accepted to either of these programs on the first day they applied, there is still a mandatory six-month wait between getting accepted and actually getting checks.  If you get approved for Social Security Disability Insurance or Social Security Insurance in January, you’ll get your first check in August – and the reason why no money will come in July is due to the fact that you get payments for either of these programs at the end of the month, rather than the beginning.

For many, however, this wait is just too long.  In response to this, the government has a number of ways to fast track the process for certain individuals.

Who Gets Fast Tracked?

Originally, there was a list of fifty different conditions that made individuals eligible for a fast track to disability benefits.  The original list got another 38 conditions added to it on March 1st, 2010.  This list got an additional 12 conditions added to it just this month, which brings the total number of fast track conditions to 100.

For more information about fast tracking and who is eligible for it, be sure to either contact the Social Security Administration through their website at www.ssa.gov, or call them at 800-777-1213 to learn if fast tracking is an available option for you.
