Wonder how this is different from the Medicaid expansion that will take place under the new Healthcare law.

It usually is a long hard road till you have your trial and get your decision from the Social Security Judge.

But the day will eventually come. And after you win several things will happen. 

You will receive a notice, typically within 30 to 60 days. It will tell you when you will receive your first monthly check and the amount. In some cases you may be entitled to SSI payments also. Your local Social Security office will contact you to set up a meeting to review your financial information to determine whether you are entitled to SSI.

If you had any minor children during the onset of your disability the Social Security Administration will want to make sure they receive benefit payments and back benefits.

You may also want to set up direct deposit arrangements for your monthly Social Security Disability payments.

Finally, once you are eligible for Social Security Disability medicaid will be available to most people, and eventually you will be eligible for Medicare.
