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.
