Getting Rid of the Sleepless Nights While You Wait for Your Social Security Disability Hearing: An “On the Record” Decision

Cant Sleep Disability HearingIf you’ve applied for Social Security Disability benefits and are 55 years or older, unable to perform your past relevant work, and are limited to unskilled work, you might be entitled to what’s called “on the record” decision. This is a request, made prior to a hearing by your attorney for a fully favorable decision granting your Social Security Disability claim. An “on the record” decision is granted when there is clear cut evidence of your functional limitations and it’s clear that once the Social Security Administration went through the 5 Step Sequential Evaluation, you’d be found disabled.

At Cavey and Barrett, we prepare a written hearing memorandum prior to the administrative hearing in front of the Social Security judge. We ask the judge to read the memorandum, review your disability claim and issue an on the record decision without having a hearing.

At Cavey and Barrett, we know that one way to get rid of your sleepless nights while you are waiting for your Social Security Disability benefits is to request an on the record decision prior to your Social Security Disability hearing.

The Costs of Your Social Security Disability Application | How Much Does It Cost?

It costs, on average, $1,180 to process a single Social Security Disability application. The initial review is generally denied. The costs of the initial application, reconsideration and hearing by an administrative law judge costs the Social Security Administration on average $4,759.

Just think how much money the federal government could save if they had competent reviewers at the initial application and reconsideration stage where over 90% of applications are denied. Statistics show that over 70% of Social Security Disability applicants who have a hearing by the administrative law judge, win their benefits, ultimately costing the Social Security system and the American public $4,759.

How Can I Get a Fast Hearing on My Social Security Claim? | Social Security Benefits Denied Attorney

There are only three circumstances in which you might be able to get a fast hearing on your Social Security Disability claim. To get an expedited hearing you must show:

  1. That you are 55 years or older. The claim is more easily decided by a Social Security Administrative law judge if you are older than 55 because under the Social Security rules you fall into the less restricted disability category. Sharon Barrett, an experienced Social Security Disability attorney, practicing in Florida may file a request for expedited hearing once her clients reach the age the of 55.
  2. If you are at critical risk of death because emergency life saving surgery can’t be performed, you may be able to get an expedited hearing. However, you are going to need a letter from your doctor explaining the medical urgency which necessitates an expedited hearing.
  3. You received a notice of eviction, foreclosure or acceleration of mortgage payments. That might also a ground for asking for an expedited hearing.

There really are no guarantees that any of these three situations will result in the Social Security Administration scheduling an expedited hearing. You must understand that despite the most compelling circumstances, the Social Security Administration does not always grant requests for expedited hearings.

If you have any questions about whether your personal circumstances might entitle you to an early Social Security Disability hearing, contact Social Security benefits denied attorney Sharon Barrett at www.caveylaw.com or by calling us at 727-894-3188.
