When should you file for Social Security Disability or your Work injury case?
You should file for your Workers’ Compensation case right away.
This will put your employer on notice and they will not be able to argue that they did not have timely notice of the injury.
It also gets your time off work pay and medical benefits going.
Tell your doctors and other medical providers that you have filed for a work injury case so that all the records and bills will go to the work comp insurance company.
There is no good reason for delaying in filing the application of claim.
Talk to an experienced Illinois Workers’ Compensation Attorney to learn how to file an application of claim.
No fee is charged until you recover.
You may file for Social Security Disability as soon as you stop working full time.
If you delay it may reduce the benefits you receive from Social Security.
The filing process is done online.
This notifies Social Security that you have stopped working and are seeking the benefits you are entitled to under the law.
It also tells Social Security that they need to get all the medical records from all your providers.
An experienced Social Security Disability Attorney will help you file online.
No fee is charged until you recover back benefits.
