After you receive notice that you have been approved for Social Security disability benefits, you may have several questions for your Lowell Social Security disability attorneys. Here are a few common questions that our Lowell Social Security disability attorneys field.
Do I have to do anything in particular to get my benefits started?
Lowell Social Security Disability attorneys can explain that you do not have to visit a Social Security office or complete any type of forms after being approved for benefits. Instead, the Social Security Administration will begin processing your benefits automatically.
How do I get benefits for my children?
If your children can receive benefits due to your approval, you will need to submit an application after your date of entitlement. This will not affect the processing of your own benefits.
How long does it take for me to start receiving my benefits?
A Lowell Social Security disability lawyer can explain that it usually takes a month or two for you to receive your back benefits and your monthly benefits. If SSI is involved in the case, it will likely take much longer. Some recipients may receive their benefits three months after they were approved while others may receive benefits sooner. If it takes longer than 90 days for benefits to be processed, you may need to contact the Social Security Administration to see if there is a problem. Your Lowell Social Security disability lawyer may contact the payment center on your behalf if you do not have benefits within 90 days.
