Can You Expedite Your Social Security Disability Hearing?

A large number of initial Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) claims are denied. Every applicant whose claim has been denied has the right to appeal the decision, but months can pass before the Social Security Administration holds a hearing regarding an appeal.

This delay places great hardships on many people whose SSDI claims are in limbo. Is there any way to expedite your Social Security Disability hearing? In some cases, the answer is "yes" and in other cases the answer is "no." You should discuss your case with an experienced Social Security Disability attorney.

The time from the date of a request for a SSDI hearing and the actual hearing is typically 12-14 months.

Expediting A Social Security Disability Hearing

The Social Security Administration will expedite the hearing for a SSDI appeal in cases of dire need. If you are at risk of eviction from your home or you are extremely sick, it may be possible to get a SSDI hearing expedited. You can also ask for an on-record decision regarding your appeal without a hearing. With this second option, however, you lose the ability to present additional information regarding your medical condition and disability.
