#2. Launch a congressional inquiry.
To expedite your SSD hearing, you can contact the local office of your congressman or senator, which will start the process for a congressional inquiry. Congressional inquiries usually involve a staff member in the senator or congressman’s office reaching out of Social Security on behalf of the claimant. Congressional hearings don’t always work but, launching one won’t hurt your case. In fact, with a congressional inquiry, you may get your SSD hearing schedule in just a few months instead of a year.
#3. Request an on-the-record-review (OTR).
In an OTR, either the claimant or their representative will simply request that the case gets reviewed by the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review before the hearing date. If all goes well, the case will get approved without the need for a hearing. However, the medical evidence in the case must be compelling in order for an OTR to be approved.
