Back on Feb. 10, we discussed how people who cannot work due to a disability sometimes have to wait a long time before their Social Security disability benefits application is decided upon. Most SSD applications are rejected, and it can take years before an appeal finally gets resolved. Meanwhile, the strain of having little to no income continues to be a huge burden.
The SSA is trying to speed up the process for at least a segment of applicants. It announced recently that some disabled military veterans will soon get their SSD claimed processed much more quickly.
