Deadlines and Wait Times for Disability Hearings

Too many disability applications, not enough Social Security employees, and incompetence in  bureaucratic planning have all lead to lengthy wait times for a disability appeal hearing in front of an administrative law judge from Social Security. Fortunately, there are ways to  speed up a hearing date, including submitting your medical records on your own and writing a dire need letter. You might even be able to skip the hearing by making a request for an on-the-record-review or an attorney advisor opinion.
