Are you waiting for an SSD hearing date? Wait no more.

If you've watched the news or spoken to anyone who has gone through the Social Security Disability application process, you know that it isn't fast. Many initial applications are denied, which then must be appealed. This is frustrating for those who truly need disability benefits.

The wait time has been reduced by years in Raleigh

The average wait time for hearings, as well as the approval percentage, depends on the location of the court. In Raleigh, North Carolina, the average wait time for hearings used to be nearly 20 months -- just under 650 days. Fortunately, an influx of new judges to the area is drastically improving these numbers. Applicants are now able to get their hearings scheduled this fall!

Many people are shocked when they receive a benefit denial in the mail. If this happens, you need to read over the notification carefully. It will provide you with information about how to appeal and what deadlines you have. It is important to ensure that your appeal is made within those confines. You can be denied again if you don't comply with the deadline given in the notice.

With the reduction in wait times for hearings, you may be able to receive benefits by Christmas this year. Working with a legal professional can help you to learn how to be ready to stand before the judge and fight for the disability benefits you need and deserve.
