Notifications and Average Wait Times in Social Security Disability Cases

A Waterloo Social Security disability lawyer will answer questions you may have about disability hearings.Gavel & Money

What Is the Wait Time for a Social Security Disability Case?

At my firm, I, a Waterloo Social Security disability lawyer will explain to my clients how long it will take for a decision and the payment of benefits. Across the country, it takes an average of 15.5 months from when the hearing is requested to the decision.

It usually takes approximately two to three months before the claimant gets a decision. If awarded benefits, it can take one to two months to begin receiving payments. Back benefits can take between one and six months.

How Will I Be Notified of My Hearing?

The judge’s assistant will contact me to make sure you are available on the scheduled day and I will call you. The judge will also send you a Notice of Hearing. If you receive the Notice of Hearing before I inform you of the date, I may have not been informed. Call me as soon as possible.
