What else should I know about applying for Social Security Disability Benefits?

You should be aware that you can collect Social Security Disability Benefits, Workers’ Compensation benefits, and long-term disability payments from a long-term disability policy at the same time. You should be also aware that the long-term disability benefits provider may offer to help you with your Social Security application at “no cost”. However, sometimes they don’t ask for sufficient information due to the many complicated Social Security forms, and the Social Security Administration receives less than fully accurate information. This could ultimately jeopardize your entitlement at a later date to long-term disability benefits, or to Social Security Disability Benefits. You should have an attorney helping you.
