What Happens at the End of My SSD Hearing?

  • Published: June 24, 2013

The final phase of your hearing is the closing argument of your Ocala Social Security disability attorney. If necessary, your attorney will summarize your case to the judge. This can be done either verbally or in writing.

What Happens After the Hearing?

As your Ocala Social Security disability lawyer will explain to you, once the disability hearing concludes, you must wait for the judge’s decision. Some judges will render a decision from the bench at the conclusion of the hearing. However, this is rare. In most cases, a written decision is mailed to you and your Ocala Social Security disability attorney some time later.

How Long Will I Have to Wait?

There is really no way to predict how long a judge will take to issue a decision. Your Ocala Social Security disability attorney usually will expect a decision one or two months after the hearing. Unfortunately, sometimes the process can take even longer. If more than three months have passed, call your Ocala Social Security disability lawyer. He can call and make sure your file has not been lost. Unfortunately, however, your lawyer can’t speed up the process.
