Social Security Disability (“SSD”) claimants frequently ask, “How long does it take to get a decision?” That general question cannot really be answered because it depends on countless variables. However, the process can be hastened if your doctors and other sources supporting your claim respond promptly and fully.
We represent a former salesperson from Lynbrook who suffers from anxiety and PTSD whose SSD application was approved without a hearing. We were able to obtain reports from the claimant’s psychiatric nurse practitioners, one of whom also provided thorough and complete answers to a questionnaire from Social Security, and psychotherapist. As everything Social Security requested was expeditiously submitted, a consultative examination was not requested.
The claimant may not have had the same outcome if she had filed on her own. This is why it is so important to retain an attorney who specializes in disability if you plan on applying for SSD. If you are thinking about applying for SSD, please call my office for a free phone consultation. We have offices conveniently located on Long Island in Nassau and Suffolk counties.
