Social Security Disability Status

Social Security Disability Status

You're finished filing for Social Security Disability; you're probably wondering what happens next, right? Once you've filed your Social Security Disability claim with the SSA office, it is sent to the state disability processing agency (DDS) for a medical decision. Unfortunately, the DDS has no set time frame in which to process your disability claim, and it could be anywhere from forty-five to sixty days after filing before you find out the status of your Social Security Disability claim.

Once a hearing is requested, the status of your claim could be up in the air for over 18 months. Although the Social Security Administration is making strides to improve the wait time, a decision cannot come quick enough for some of our clients.
