How to Get Your Disability Claim Approved Faster

A common question amongst most Social Security disability applicants is how to get your disability claim approved faster. While there’s no way to guarantee a faster approval time, there are certain ways that qualified individuals can better streamline the process.

How to Get Your Disability Claim Approved Through an Expedited Review Program

One way Social Security disability applicants can qualify for faster approval times is through one of the expedited claims programs the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) has established. These programs include the Compassionate Allowance List (CAL), designed for individuals who suffer from dire conditions; and the Wounded Warrior program, designed specifically for Americans disabled during active military duty. Qualified individuals who apply and are approved under either of these programs often experience a short wait period before receiving a disability benefits approval letter from the SSA.

For individuals who do not suffer from a CAL-approved condition and are not considered a Wounded Warrior, having an experienced disability advocate or attorney’s help is usually your best chance for securing a faster approval time. A disability attorney or advocate can:

  1. Ensure all the proper documentation is included in your application
  2. Check on the status of your claim, and
  3. Represent you if an appeals hearing is necessary.

These elements are crucial in getting your claim approved quickly. Plus, all Social Security attorneys work on contingency, so you’ll never pay anything unless your case wins. An attorney can help you avoid basic paperwork mistakes that currently get 2 in every 5 applicants denied automatically. In fact, a disability lawyer filing your application makes you 2x more likely to get approved for benefits on your first try. And if a lawyer does help you win benefits, you’ll only pay a small, one-time fee. It’s federal law!
