After submitting your request for an on-the-record decision in Dallas, there are several possible next steps in the Social Security disability claim process. Fortunately, an experienced attorney can help guide you each step of the way. The following are potential next steps following an application for an on-the record decision as part of your Social Security disability claim:
- It is possible that an attorney adjudicator reviewing your file may contact you with specific questions. Examples of such questions include whether you are currently working, or when your disability began.
- You may receive an approval of your on-the-record decision. The judge will review the written record provided to the Social Security Administration and may issue a finding that you qualify for benefits.
- You request for on-the-record decision in Dallas might not be approved.
- Your Social Security disability case may move on to a hearing.
Fortunately, there are no penalties for being issued a denial of your request for an on-the-record decision. If the request succeeds, however, you will have avoided the need for a hearing with regard to your claim. The process will also have been expedited since you will not have to wait for a formal hearing. Since there are so many potential benefits to obtaining an on-the-record decision, this means there is little reason not to seek out the on-the-record decision.
