Pending SSDI cases to increase

Getting approved for Social Security Disability Insurance can take a long time, and now officials at the Social Security Administration expect the number of pending cases to reach to over a million by the end of the the 2013 fiscal year.

More than 860,000 initial disability claims are expected to be pending by September, the end of the 2012 fiscal year, which makes it all the more important to consult with an expert before filing your claim.

An attorney can help you with the difficult paperwork process and ensure that all the necessary documents are present and properly filled out. Only about 34 percent of all applications, including appeals, get approved for benefits.
