Disability is more common as you age, and the long application process for Social Security Disability Benefits can be harder later in life as well. Roughly two-thirds of disability claims are denied. Mistakes, like those listed below, can cause delays of months to years in receiving benefits.
Applying for Disability and Unemployment Benefits
When you apply for Social Security Disability, you claim that you have been unable to do any substantial work for a period of twelve months. When you apply for Unemployment, however, you are claiming that you would be willing to take a job if one were found that was in your skill range. Most experts advise calling the Unemployment Office and having your benefits stopped if you
are approved for Disability.
