Social Security Disability Expedited Hearings

| Dec 4, 2013 | Social Security Disability

The Social Security Administration will occasionally expedite hearings in three different circumstances:

1) The claimant’s illness is terminable.

2) The claimant is without or unable to obtain food, medicine, or shelter.

3) The claimant is suicidal or homicidal.

A terminable illness must be substantiated by medical evidence. Dire need claims require proof of items such as eviction notices, termination of utilities, etc. The danger of suicide or homicide must be established by evidence from competent mental health providers.
