Disabled worker waited three years to get SSDI benefits
A disabled New York woman recently started receiving her Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits after three years of waiting, wivb.com reported on September 3.
Worker Kathy Nobilio reportedly filed for her SSDI benefits in 2011 after sustaining debilitating neck and back injuries. Nobilio’s claim was heard by a Social Security judge as recently as February 2013 and only now received her first payment. Reports state that the procedure for procuring SSDI benefits in Buffalo is one of the longest in the U.S. Nobilio was worried that the wait would cost her everything, including her home. However, a new judge assigned to her case awarded her two years worth of retroactive benefits.
Unfortunately many disabled workers have to wait an unreasonable amount of time for them to receive their much needed SSDI benefits.
