Studies show that if you are 20 years old right now, you have a 3 in 10 chance of becoming disabled over the period of your working life. This is a staggering number to me. At this time, there are 700,000 people waiting for their social security disability insurance. The average waiting time for disability benefits from the Social Security Administration is 491 days.
Hopefully you or no one you know is in that category right now, but if you are, there is help. Although there is a serious backlog of cases waiting to find out if they will receive their SSDI, there are agencies online that can significantly shorten the process and get you the assistance you need in a much more timely way.
