It takes a long time to get a Social Security Disability Hearing.

What happens after the hearing?

Most of the time you have to wait 30 to 60 days for the Administrative Law Judge to write his decision. Some Judges will tell you their decision at the hearing. This does not happen very often.

If you are found disabled, another part of Social Security will send you a notice and start working on paying your monthly benefits.

Typically, it takes about 30 days to start your monthly check, and a little bit longer to pay your back benefits.

The time frame can take longer if you also have a workers’ compensation case, or if SSI is involved.
