Helping Clients Get Their Disability Benefits Faster in Saline County
Has your initial claim for Social Security benefits been denied? You have the opportunity to request a reconsideration and attend a hearing before an administrative law judge (ALJ). During the disability hearing, you will be able to speak with the judge who directly impacts the final ruling on your case. With so much at stake, it is essential to acquire the assistance of an experienced legal team that can guide you through the process.

Our Arkansas disability hearing attorneys can prepare you for potential questions you could be asked during the hearing, making sure you are ready to answer them honestly and thoroughly.
Expediting Your Disability Hearing
If you have been injured and can no longer make an income, your financial situation can begin to spiral out of control. Medical bills, mortgages, and other debts can begin to pile up, and you are left with no way to make payments. The last thing you need is to wait for a Social Security disability hearing. Many people wait nearly two years to get their day in court – not to mention the time it takes to receive the ALJ's decision, which is often around 60 days.
The good news is that there are some situations where individuals can expedite the process. Our experienced lawyers can help you take the necessary steps to have quicker access to the disability benefits you need. There are several types of claims that are considered “critical cases” and will be processed more rapidly.
The Social Security Administration will expedite your disability claim if:
- You are in “dire need” of food, medical care, or shelter
- You are considered to be a threat to yourself or others
- You have a terminal illness
- You are a current or former military service member whose disability began while on active duty
- You have a medical condition that qualifies for a “compassionate allowance” (CAL)
