Expediting Your Hearing
New Jersey Social Security Disability Hearing Attorneys
If you have been denied SSD benefits, you do have the option of filing for a hearing before an administrative judge. This administrative judge acts on behalf of the Social Security Office of Hearings and Appeals. However, there are some situations in which waiting is not an option. You may have a medical condition that is urgent. In these types of scenarios, expediting the hearing is possible.
If you have applied for SSDI/SSI benefits and want to expedite your review or hearing, schedule a free initial consultation at Robert A. Solomon, P.C. Our experienced New Jersey Social Security Disability hearing attorneys can help you take the necessary steps in speeding up the SSDI/SSI review process. Contact us today to discuss how we can help you get disability payments during this urgent time.
Expedite Your Social Security Disability Hearing or Review
There are a few options that you can take in trying to expedite your SSD hearing or review. One is by submitting a "dire need" letter to the Social Security Office of Hearings and Appeals. Dire needs may include:
- Inability to pay for medications
- Unable to make mortgage payments
- Danger of foreclosure
- Threat of utilities being shut off
- Threat of eviction
We can help you submit your letter of dire need and explain your circumstances to the office so that your hearing can be expedited.
Another option instead of having a hearing, is requesting an OTR ("On-the-Record Review"). Rather than have your claim reviewed before an administrative judge at the hearing, your claim will be reviewed prior to this by record. These are usually done in situations when an individual's health is quickly deteriorating or there is a financial emergency.
