Waiting for your Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits can be a chore. As a Kentucky resident, you may be wondering how to get things on the fast track. As it turns out, there are a number of tactics that you can adopt in order to achieve this goal. Here are some ways to get moved up to the front of the line.
Speed up your receipt of SSD benefits
You have every right to expect a speedy delivery of the Social Security Disability benefits that you have earned. There are a wide range of illnesses and medical conditions that can get you moved up to the front of the line. The time is now to talk to your physician in order to see if you have one of these qualifying conditions.
You may recently have been diagnosed with an illness that has reached a stage that is considered terminal. If this is the case, your SSD application can be put on a fast track. These may include such conditions as cancer that has metastasized. If you are in hospice care, you can also get your SSD faster.
There are other types of conditions that can get you fast tracked. If you have given birth to an infant with a low birth weight, you can receive your benefits much faster. If you can prove that you are in danger of becoming homeless if you don’t get your benefits, the system can be made to move more quickly for you.
It’s time to get on the fast track
If you are running out of time, you can’t afford to wait for the normal process of cycling through red tape. The time for you to fast track your SSD benefits is now.
You may be able to do so by proving that you suffer from a condition known as presumptive disability. This includes such conditions as mental impairment, amputation of limbs, deafness, blindness, or HIV/AIDS. You may also have become disabled while serving on active military duty. If this is the case, you can be fast tracked.
