Is There A 12-Month Waiting Period to File DIB?

If you are unable to work and need Disability Insurance Benefits (DIB), do not wait to contact an experienced attorney. Some people think that they must wait 12 months to file for benefits, but that is not so.

To be eligible for DIB, you must have a physical or mental disability, or a combination of physical and mental disabilities, which have significantly impaired your ability to work for a year, or which are expected to significantly impact your ability to work for at least a year (or which may result in death).

The key word is expected. If you have a condition that is likely to impact your ability to work for at least a year, contact an attorney immediately to get the application process started. For help in southeast Michigan, call Babut Law Offices, PLLC, at (734) 485-7000.
