You should file for your Social Security Disability as soon as possible.

There is nothing to  be gained if you wait.

In fact, you may lose benefits the longer you wait to file for your Social Security Disability.

The reason is that you can only be paid back benefits for 12 months before your application is filed.

You also want to want to have your Social Security hearing as soon as possible. It can take up to 2 years to get the hearing so it is best to file and get things going.

Remember there are no filing fees or costs.
