How long does it take for ALJ to make decision?
Sometimes (rarely) an ALJ will announce a favorable decision at the hearing. Usually, however, it takes 2-3 months to get a decision. Sometimes it can take six months or longer. (In our experience, the longer it takes for the ALJ to make a decision, the more likely it is that the decision will be unfavorable.)
How long does it take to get approved for disability in Kansas?
How long will a disability decision take? Cases that are pending at the disability application level in Kansas may take as long as 3-4 months before a decision is made by a disability examiner.
Is an ALJ decision final?
When an ALJ decision becomes final and binding (see HALLEX I-2-8-5), and the ALJ has jurisdiction over the issue (see HALLEX I-2-9-5), the ALJ will consider the conditions and timeframes for reopening the decision. (See A above.)
Do SSDI denials come faster than approvals?
Do Denials Come Faster Than Approvals? But when it comes to the time frame of approvals or denials, there is actually no difference. Each individual claim is investigated, and whether your benefits are approved or denied does not influence how long it takes for that investigation to be processed.
Can a decision by the ALJ be overturned?
Technically, yes, a favorable ALJ decision (one that grants benefits) after a disability hearing can be overturned by the Appeals Council. The Appeals Council can choose to review any ALJ decisions for review, and the Appeals Council can choose to grant benefits that an ALJ denied or deny benefits that an ALJ granted.

What happens after ALJ makes decision?

Is it a good sign when Social Security disability sends you to a doctor?
