When my husband was in the approval stage of getting disability, we learned that if you express you need the money, they actually start giving it to you immediately, even though the approval isn't complete, kinda like financial aid, the only clause is, if you don't get approved you have to repay any money they gave you, but if you know you will be approved, go into department and they will start paying you within a few weeks.
But they also will only give it to you for 6 months, so you must finish your paperwork by then so you don't lack a monthly income.
We did it and got paid during the approval process.. It wasn't hard.
