What Happens at the Social Security Disability Hearing?

What Happens at the Social Security Disability Hearing?

  • Your Attorney will have a pre-hearing Preparation Meeting
  • You will be asked questions that you will be asked at the actual hearing
  • You do not have to worry about being perfect, but should worry about properly presenting your Information
  • The Judge will typically ask all of the questions, but may request that your Attorney asks all of the questions
  • You will be asked about your Medical History, Work History, and Day-to-Day Activities
  • A Cross-Examiner will show your Attorney various jobs that you may or may not be able to perform, and it is up to your Attorney to prove them wrong
  • Make sure to inform your Attorney if you are going to be late to your Hearing, or if you need any accommodations at your Hearing
  • You may temporarily pause your Hearing if you begin to have a Panic Attack
