How Long Will It Take for Me to Receive Benefits?
If a disability hearing is heard, it may take about 15 months between the time you request a hearing and the decision is made on your case. Additionally, your lawyer can explain that it may take about two to three months for you to receive a decision after the hearing is held unless the administrative law judge issues a bench decision. Social Security disability attorneys often see it take claimants one to two months before they begin to receive current benefits. It takes even longer for them to receive back benefits.

How Will I Know the Date of My Hearing?

What Do I Do if I Receive the Notice First?
