Let your Voice be heard: Share your SSDI/Medicare 24-month wait period story - After an individual qualifies for the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program, they are eligible for Medicare benefits but must wait twenty-four months before they can use this insurance. Since the waiting period for SSDI approval is typically five months, this makes a person’s total wait time for health insurance at least twenty-nine months!
