Charlotte Disability Attorney Discusses Facts About Social Security Hearings, Dates, and Notifications
If you have questions about your Social Security hearing, call (888) 632-9912 to speak to a Charlotte disability attorney at the Bridgman Law Offices today.
Your Charlotte disability attorney will explain how long the Social Security hearing will take to be held, the amount of time it takes to be notified of the date of the hearing, and what will happen if you get the Notice of Hearing prior to notification from your attorney.
How Much Time Will It Take for the Hearing, Decision, and Payment of Benefits?
There is no set amount of time from requesting a Social Security hearing to a decision. Across the nation, the average amount of time that elapses from the date the hearing is held to the decision is 15.5 months. In some cases, the judge will issue a decision from the bench at the hearing. In most, it will take approximately two to three months before the decision is given. If you win your case, your current benefits will be paid in one to two months. From the date you receive your decision, it might take between one and six months for you to receive all of your back benefits. If it is the SSI you are dealing with, it might take longer. All told, it can take a significant amount of time before you start receiving your payments.
How Do I Receive Notification About When My Hearing Will Be?
Your Charlotte disability attorney will likely notify you first. An assistant to the judge will call your attorney prior to setting a date for your hearing to ensure that the date is open. When your Charlotte disability attorney receives this call, you will receive a letter. After that, the judge will send you a Notice of Hearing. In the event that you receive the Notice of Hearing prior to your lawyer informing you of the date, it might be because your lawyer was not contacted. If you receive the Notice of Hearing prior to your attorney notifying you, call your lawyer as soon as possible.
