Ssdi Hearing

Rate this question



I had a hearing about two weeks ago before a ALJ. I was driven about and hour to the hearing and waited about two hours before I saw the judge. My attorney met with the judge first for about 15 min. I was then told by my attorney that I would not have to give much testimony. I was in with the judge and the occupational specialist for about six minutes. It was brief and to the point . The occupational specialist stated that my past work skills "did not" translate to a sedentary work/job. This process has been going on 14 months now.

Anyone has an idea how much longer decision could take. I am SC for depression/w ptsd, sleep apena, hypertension, GERD and right knee condition. Being treated for diabetes, neurapthy and back condition. I am thankful to all for your help and insight.

If the Vocational expert said that then I take it that you are in.

Expect a letter from the Judge in 30 days from the hearing and a letter from Baltimore a couple of weeks after that.

The judge writes the decision and sends your copy and Baltimores copy at the same time.

Let us know what happens.


A Veteran is a person who served this country. Treat them with respect.

A Disabled Veteran is a person who served this country and bears the scars of that service regardless of when or where they served.

Treat them with the upmost respect. I do. Rejection is not a sign of failure. Failure is not an option, Medical opinions and evidence wins claims. Trust in others is a virtue but you take the T out of Trust and you are left with Rust so be wise about who you are dealing with.
