How long will it take for me to get my Social Security benefits?

  • This is a very slow process. However, our team's experience with the Social Security Administration will make this process smoother for you.
  • If you have just applied for benefits, it may take 60-90 days just to receive the initial decision, which is often a denial. There may be another 60-day appeal deadline and another 60-90 days for a decision. It could take 12-18 months or longer for a hearing date. Depending on individual circumstances, a case could take two years or more before a decision.
