Social Security Disability & SSI: The Consultative Exam

26ad151466cb46bda372f2f77825c707.jpgAfter you apply for benefits, your claim will be assigned to a case worker at your local SSA district office. The work is divided between the case workers by program type (SSI or SSDI) and by the first letter of the claimant's last name. Once your case worker processes your application, your claim will be forwarded to Disability Determination Services, or 'DDS.' It can take anywhere from a couple weeks to around 6 months for your claim to be forwarded; the application speed of individual district offices varies significantly.
