The best time to apply for disability benefits is when you realize that the injury or illness that you have is preventing you from doing the tasks that your occupation requires of you. Sometimes people are terminated because they are unable to do their job and don’t realize it until the employer faces them with this type of disciplinary action. And even though a person may be terminated because of that, it’s not too late to apply for disability benefits. You may need the assistance of an attorney to make your human resources person understand that you became disabled before your job ended and that’s all that is generally necessary to prove in order to file your application for disability benefits.
