Hearing Process: Request a Hearing and Submit Medical Evidence

The first step in winning a disability hearing is to request a hearing with the Social Security Administration (SSA) as soon as possible after your initial application is denied. Once you have a scheduled hearing, you must submit updated medical evidence supporting your claim. This evidence should include medical records, treatment notes, and statements from doctors or other healthcare providers that describe the severity and impact of your medical conditions on your ability to work.

Telephone and In-Person Hearings

Many disability hearings are now conducted over the phone. That can make it more challenging for disability claimants to present their cases effectively, as they may not have the opportunity to meet with the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) in person.

However, it is still possible to win a disability hearing over the phone by preparing your case carefully and answering questions clearly and concisely.

Hire a Disability Attorney

Another critical factor in winning a disability hearing is the assistance of an experienced disability attorney. A disability attorney can help you prepare your case, gather and submit medical evidence, and represent you in the best light. They can also help you understand the hearing process and what to expect from the ALJ’s questions.
