Social Security Disability Hearings in Tallahassee

Helping You Obtain the Benefits You Deserve

For those who are 18 years or older, are not already receiving Social Security benefits, and are unable to work due to a medical condition that will last for at least a year, Social Security disability benefits exist. Unfortunately, even if you deserve these benefits, they are not always easy to obtain. If you were denied Social Security disability benefits, and were denied again during your reconsideration, your case will progress to a Social Security disability hearing. Unlike most other courtroom hearings, your disability hearing will commence before an administrative law judge and will not be open to the public.

At Anderson & Hart, P.A., our Tallahassee Social Security disability attorneys will help you obtain the results you need. We have the experience and knowledge required to navigate the complexities of these cases with success.

What to Expect at the Hearing?

Part of the anxiety people often feel regarding Social Security disability hearing is not knowing what to expect during the process.

To relieve some of this anxiety and provide clarity, are a few things you can expect to happen during your hearing:

  • You are going to be questioned by the administrative judge on your case. His or her questions will focus on your medical issues, medical treatment, previous employment, and how your medical condition affects your life. Be prepared to answer these questions thoroughly and honestly. Lying or exaggerating about your problems will only damage your credibility.
  • You can ask your attorney to speak on your behalf. Your attorney is not just there to advise you; he or she can also argue your case or speak for you.
  • The judge will question expert witnesses regarding your medical condition, including which tasks they believe you can still perform. They will provide crucial details about your ability to work, sustain a job, and which jobs they believe you can still effectively perform in your condition.
  • You might be required to answer additional questions and will be given the opportunity to make any comments or statements.
  • Do not expect to receive a decision on the same day as your hearing. In fact, it can take as much as 30 days before you receive the judge’s decision. In certain unique circumstances, the judge might issue a bench decision, but this is uncommon.
