Many people wait years before filing for a Social Security Disability claim and then they end up with a date last insured issue. Many people are also unaware that once you stop working after a period of time (normally up to 5 years) that you lose you disability insurance. Meaning, after all the years you have worked and all the money you have put in the system you may never be eligible to receive it after you lose you insurance for disability. If you are no longer eligible for Social Security Disability your only other option would be SSI (Supplemental Security Income.) For SSI you must meet the disability aspect of the claim and you also must meet a low income level. People waiting too long to file for disability may ultimately be prevented from receiving any income from the Social Security Administration until they reach retirement age.
If you are interested in Social Security Disability benefits and have not worked within the past few years, you need to contact us immediately to make sure you are still eligible for SSDI. Feel free to call me at 561-598-7120. We look forward to speak to you.
