How Long Does A Social Security Disability Review Take?

You filed a Social Security Disability claim; now you are just waiting on the application process;

In general, the process can take up to 3-5 months to get a decision on your social security case. The Social Security Administration determines your eligibility for Social Security benefits by ensuring you have a qualifying disability.

To make a decision, The Social Security Administration evaluates all necessary evidence on your medical condition and how it impacts your ability to work. It may be challenging to determine the exact length of time it takes for the Social Security Administration (SSA) to decide on your case.

However, several contributing factors determine how long it takes to hear back from Social Security for your claim.

  • How long it takes to obtain your medical records.

  • How long it takes to get the medical evidence needed to make a decision.

  • How long it takes for the SSA to request copies of medical evidence from hospitals, clinics, or other facilities.

  • How long it takes for medical and vocational experts to contact your doctors.

The SSA sends your Social Security Disability application to a state agency that handles disability decisions; the state has experienced vocational and medical professionals that contact your medical providers.

Medical evidence is the foundation in disability determination under both the title ll and title XVI programs. Suppose you can provide the Social Security Administration (SSA) with accurate and complete information regarding your medical evidence. In that case, it can help speed up the process for your social security disability review.

It is required for the SSA to obtain specific medical evidence to establish the eligibility for your disability., The SSA regulations require “objective medical evidence” from an “acceptable” medical facility to prove that the claimant has a medically determinable disability or impairment.
