An approval or denial of a Social Security Disability claim can take anywhere from a few months to up to two even two and a half years. It really depends on how serious your disabling conditions are. If you for example have become a paraplegic or quadriplegic you might get approved fairly quickly. If you on the other hand have a neck and back problem that required surgery and you have to go all the way to a hearing with an Administrative Law Judge it may take as long as two years.
