Expediting Your Disability Hearing
Once you have begun the application process for Social Security Disability benefits, your best chance for receiving an award of benefits will occur during the hearing stage of the appeals process. However, every stage of the application and appeals process can have lengthy waiting periods, and getting a hearing date may also take time. Having the experience and skill of a Sacramento Social Security Disability attorney from our firm can ensure the process is handled as quickly and effectively as possible.
How Can I Qualify to Expedite My Hearing?
There are several ways to qualify for an expedited disability hearing:
- Dire Need Letter - A Dire Need Letter may be sent if the applicant is in danger of losing their place of residence either by eviction or foreclosure, or is in danger of losing access to needed medications. This could prompt your hearing date to be scheduled quickly in order to void these emergencies.
- On the Record Review (OTR) - With an "On the Record Review," your attorney requests the hearing office to review your file or record prior to your hearing date to make a decision that will hopefully eliminate the need to wait for a hearing date to be set.
- Congressional Inquiry - If you contact your congressman and ask for assistance with your case, a congressional inquiry will be launched and in many cases this can speed up the hearing and decision process.
Whatever the case may be, having the proven and knowledgeable assistance of an attorney from DAA can facilitate the process and aim to increase the chances of obtaining your needed benefits as soon as possible.
