What Happens After A Disability Hearing?

Tulsa SSDI Lawyer Explains Waiting Periods And Supplemental Hearings In Disability Cases

After a disability hearing, there will likely be a waiting period in which you will not yet know the outcome of your case. In some cases, there will be a supplemental hearing. In this video, Tulsa SSDI attorney Erin Stackenwalt explains the process and waiting period, and how a judge will decide whether to grant you disability benefits. Disability law is a complicated field and no one, regardless of current income, should be denied the ability to apply for disability benefits. Our law firm operates on a contingency fee basis, meaning you will have no initial costs for your disability claim, and you will not have to pay any attorney fees unless we are successful in obtaining benefits for you. We offer free evaluations of your case, so you have nothing to lose and everything to gain by calling or filling out our online case review form.

After the hearing, you may know at the time of the hearing whether you’ve won or lost, and you may not, but it’s not final until the judge issues the decision, and that ranges from six weeks to three to four months unless there is a supplemental hearing. So, for instance, if the judge was not satisfied with the amount of documentation, then the judge may send you out for additional testing, may send you out for additional medical examination, or may want the advice of a medical expert to give his opinion regarding your case.
