SS Disability Waiting Period

There is a five-month waiting period for Social Security Disability benefits. That is, if someone is deemed disabled in January, they would have to wait until June for the benefits to kick in. This only applies to SS Disability and not Social Security Supplemental Income (SSI). Please let us know if you have any questions about this.
