The Social Security Administration handles thousands of claims each year. But with a high volume of applicants and a relatively small number of personnel, the system has become backlogged. This means claimants may wait nearly two years before an administrative law judge will hear their case on appeal.
While this is frustrating for most, it can be particularly damaging to some. If you require an immediate hearing to disperse your benefits, The Golden Law Group can help. Located in the Central Gulf Coast region of Florida, we are dedicated to obtaining a swift decision in your Social Security Disability case.
The Social Security Administration is often reluctant to let individuals "budge in line." In order to request an expedited hearing, you must demonstrate one of two conditions:
- Dire financial need: This type of waiver is available to those who are unable to obtain adequate food, medical care or shelter due to insufficient income. You must demonstrate an immediate threat to your health or safety such as impending eviction or foreclosure.
- Terminal illness: This requires documentation from your oncologist or other medical professional. Processing may be delayed if you have recently stopped a particular course of treatment or switched doctors.
Our attorneys will work with you to identify and collect all relevant evidence to aid your case. Examples might include medical forms, and notices from landlords, mortgage lenders or utility providers. We will assist you in composing a dire need letter and, if appropriate, request an on-the-record review (decision without a hearing).
