One of our most popular questions is, “How long until I’m approved?” Well, the answer is that every case is different. There are a variety of different aspects that can speed up or slow down your case, such as the judge assigned to the case, the jurisdiction in which you live, the extent of your medical records, etc. However, there is an average amount of time that each stage of the process is expected to take.

The Initial Stage typically takes between 2 – 6 months to get a decision. If you are denied, and an appeal is filed, the Reconsideration Stage can take another 2 – 6 months. If you are still denied, and you can file a Request for Hearing. This is the longest, yet most successful stage of the process. Waiting for a hearing to be scheduled can take anywhere from 12 – 18 months. Hearings are usually scheduled 3 – 4 months in advance. After your hearing, it can take 2 – 6 months to get a decision from the judge.
