While running with his camera to cover a news story for a local television station, Calvin slipped and fractured his ankle in three places. His orthopedist recommended surgery and physical therapy with a recovery period of at least a year. Calvin called us at Cervoni Disability Law PLLC and we won his claim for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits. Calvin was ecstatic since he had exhausted sick leave coverage at his job. He wondered, however, how long it would take him to receive benefits.
We told Calvin that Social Security Disability Insurance payments would not begin until five months after he was found to be disabled. We explained that once he started to receive benefits, payments would continue as long as his medical condition had not improved and he could not return to work. We told him that the Social Security Administration would review his case periodically to make sure that he was still eligible. We advised him to let us know as soon as there was any change in his ability to work, if he returned to work or if there was any change in his medical condition.
Since it took six months for Calvin’s benefits to be approved, he began receiving payments almost immediately.
