Guiding You Through the Disability Maze
Applicants for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) Benefits and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) quickly learn that the process for receiving benefits is significantly backlogged. During this time, many individuals face dire financial situations due to their inability to work. Currently, the average wait time from the hearing request date until the actual hearing varies, but below is a list of average wait times for hearing offices in Georgia.
The good news for those that find themselves in dire situations is there are certain circumstances under which one can receive a hearing faster than the average wait time.
These circumstances will expedite the claim to the hearing level. Generally, the Administrative Law Judge advises they will issue a decision in 60-90 days after the date of hearing. A request may be made to the ALJ requesting expedited status if the claimant has been designated one of the aforementioned titles.
