Expediting Your Hearing

Dire Need Petitions for SSD Hearings

Normally there is no way to speed up the Social Security Disability application process or appeals process. You have to wait in line behind thousands of other people.

However, it may be possible to expedite a disability hearing for:

  • An urgent medical need or terminal illness
  • A financial crisis such as losing your home or apartment, or the shut off of major utilities.

Even then, the Social Security Administration will require specific proof of your dire need before agreeing to expedite your hearing ahead of others.

Contact the law firm of Martin Law to discuss your situation in a free consultation. Our team will spring into action if you have a legitimate case for expedited consideration.

Expedited Disability Hearings

If your loved one is in the end stages of cancer or needs a life-saving operation, you may be granted benefits immediately after you file an application or if at the appeal level, you may receive an on-the-record decision by a judge (bypassing the hearing), in order to get SSD benefits.

If your house is being foreclosed on or you are being evicted, it may be possible to expedite a disability hearing. You must produce an actual foreclosure notice or eviction notice, and related documents such as a shut-off notice from the utility company.

Credit card bills, cable and Internet bills, even unpaid medical bills are NOT evidence of dire need.

Our firm represents SSD and SSI claimants in the Philly area and statewide Pennsylvania, as well as clients in Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey and New York.
