Expedited Disability Benefits

As the wait time for a disability determination gets longer and longer, the Social Security Administration (SSA) is continually looking for ways to sort through the thousands of disability applications it gets to quickly grant benefits to those who clearly deserve them. Several programs expedite the processing of claims, either through selecting claims that are clear cut or granting benefits because the illness is critically serious or terminal. In addition, SSI has a program that pays immediate benefits for six months while the applicant awaits a decision from the SSA.
