How Long Does it Take for Social Security to Decide my Disability Claim

How long can you expect to wait – start to finish – for Social Security to make a decision in your case.  The answer depends on the seriousness of your medical condition and whether the evidence clearly shows that you meet a Social Security listing.

Otherwise, be prepared to wait…and wait…and wait.

Given budget cuts at SSA, you could end up waiting up to 3 years for a decision – and that’s with no guarantee that you win.  

In this podcast episode I walk you through the decision making process, including:

  • who is making the decision
  • how you can help the State Agency adjudicators obtain the medical evidence they need
  • what you must do once you have filed a hearing request
  • why SSD hearings are so backlogged

Other resources mentioned:

Forms need to file for reconsideration or to request a hearing
