Anyone who is familiar with the Social Security Disability process knows that that most initial claims for disability are not approved. In fact, over 60% of initial claims are denied. To make matters worse, the claims process takes some time to be approved. For those who have to go through the appeals process, it is common for the process to take a year or more. Though a successful appeal may result in a person earning benefits back to the application date, this is still a long period of time for a person to wait before receiving financial compensation for his or her disability. As most working people have little to no savings, they can easily end up being homeless and destitute before receiving their first check.
