Question

When should I apply for disability benefits?
Answer

You should apply for disability benefits as soon as you determine or believe that you are disabled and that the disability will or is expected to last 12 months. If your condition should improve within 12 months, you can always dismiss your claim. If your injury is minor and the disability will clearly not last 12 months, there is no reason to apply. A common mistake is for people to wait months or even years to apply. If you wait more than one year you will begin losing back due benefits as they will only pay you back one year from when you apply. If your injury is severe and it looks like the disability will go on for a while, you should file immediately.
