We help you understand the application process.
Applying for Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefits can be a long and overwhelming process. Our team of experienced Client Advocates at The Advocator Group is here to help you every step of the way.
Whether we help you complete and submit your initial application or provide you with an experienced attorney to advocate on your behalf at a hearing, we are your support system and represent you throughout the process.
Disability benefits help to preserve your financial well-being while you’re unable to work, but the process can be quite confusing. This is especially true if you are already receiving Long-Term Disability (LTD) benefits when you are approved for Social Security Disability (SSDI).
We help you understand your award.
When you are awarded Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefits, there are likely two parts to your award:
- Monthly benefits paid to you each month that you continue to qualify for SSDI.
- A “one time” retroactive payment. This retroactive payment reimburses you for the benefits you earned while applying (“past-due SSDI benefits”). Five (5) months from your disability onset date, SSA recognizes your entitlement to benefits. If you are approved for SSDI benefits six (6) or more months following your disability onset date, the SSA will pay you a lump sum for this period.
We help you understand Reimbursement Agreements.
If you are already receiving Long-Term Disability (LTD) benefits, it is important to understand the impact of an approval for Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefits.
If you receive retroactive SSDI benefits for a period that overlaps with your receipt of LTD benefits, you may need to reimburse your LTD carrier all or a portion of the overlapping benefits.
The role of The Advocator Group is to help you understand your reimbursement obligations and facilitate any required reimbursement.
Our support doesn’t end.
When your claim is finally approved and you begin receiving your monthly SSDI benefits, your team of Client Advocates at The Advocator Group will still be here to answer any questions you have and help you in any way we can. If you have questions, just give us a call!
