Five Month Waiting Period Too Long

There is a 5 month waiting period to receive Social Security Disability benefits, after the effective date of disability. This is often too long a waiting period for severely ill persons. Randy Zeldin, Social Security Disability attorney, represents a lady with terminal brain cancer, who is now going through an unnecessary delay in obtaining medical care. According to Randy Zeldin, an attorney who represents Social Security applicants throughout Palm Beach and Ft. Lauderdale, the law should be revisited by the U.S. Congress.
