What happens after a Social Security disability hearing has been held?

After your Social Security disability hearing is held, the judge and his writing staff have to create a written document known as a decision. Once you get your decision, then it's determined whether or not you're entitled to the benefits or not. Typically, after your hearing is held, the decision writers take about 60 to 90 days to get a written decision out to the judge that he has to review, and if he likes it he'll sign it and send it out. If not it goes back to rewriting again. So, 60 to 90 days of a wait is usually the time that you'll have to spend before you know whether or not you've been determined disabled or not.
