- DISABILITY CLAIM FAQ
Claims for Social Security Disability (“SSD”) benefits have always proceeded slowly, and the pandemic has only compounded matters further. As a result, an SSD claimant can wait close to two years for a hearing. Consequently, medical reports and records can become stale by the time the hearing arrives.
We represent a 50 year old truck driver from Plainview with knee, back and shoulder problems whose SSD application was filed in 2018. His hearing was transferred to another hearing office, which then rescheduled the date of the hearing.
The medical evidence that had been submitted would be a year old by the new hearing date. Although complicated by pandemic, we were able to obtain and submit updated reports. Shortly afterwards, we were notified that the claimant’s SSD application would be approved on the record, and the therefore, there was no need for a hearing.
