The approval rate for initial Social Security disability claims is only about 30%. This means that many claims will be progressed to the next level of a SSD hearing. Social Security Administration hearings are different from other types of hearings. Typically, they are conducted in a small conference room or even via video-conference.

Helpful Tips for a Smooth SSDI Hearing

The first thing to know about a Social Security disability hearing is that it is not as formal as a normal court appearance – that said, do not be surprised if the presiding Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) shows up in a judicial robe and sits on an elevated platform. Though these hearings are less formal, there are still certain protocols to follow.

If you have an SSDI hearing scheduled, you should:

  • Prepare adequately for your testimony before the ALJ
  • Dress modestly and no less formally than business casual
  • Be on time to the hearing
  • Answer the question that is asked
  • Understand your attorney’s role in the hearing

These may seem like simple suggestions, but they go a long way in helping to have a successful SSDI hearing.

What to Expect at Your Hearing

Typically, social security hearings are fairly short, averaging about 15 to 60 minutes. It is imperative to arrive on time. Depending on the ALJ, they may refuse to hear your case if you are late. Usually, a vocational expert will be present to answer hypothetical questions about what jobs someone with your limitations may be able to do. The ALJ may ask you questions about your past work and specific limitations, or he or she may wait until the end of the hearing to invite you to speak. If he or she doesn't invite you to speak, you have the right to ask for a moment to say a few words, describing how your limitations prevent you from working.
