You can’t work, even though you want to. You know how Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits could give you stability and ease your worries—but how long will it take to get approved? You feel like you’re hanging on by a thread waiting on your benefits as bills pile up around you. The monthly benefit checks would allow you to focus on your health problems instead of your bills. Unfortunately, you face many steps, forms and requirements to meet before Social Security grants disability income. At our firm, the Lachman & Gorton Law Office serving Binghamton, Elmira, Endicott, Oneonta, Rochester and people across New York, we help people like you get through this. See our graphic below to get a better sense of the timetable ahead of you.
