How long does a Social Security disability or SSI appeal typically take?

Typically your SSI and SSDI appeals take about 500 to 520 days to actually get to hearing. If you get accepted early on, it's an anomaly, so you're more likely to wait anywhere between 360 and 520 days in order to get a hearing. It will depend on your age as well. Seems like the SSI likes to take the older cases first. People who are 55 and over and then 50 and over get those guys adjudicated and then take the younger cases. It's my experience that the younger people who file have to wait longer because there's a presumption that they can work and the administration pretty well sticks with that presumption up to the time of the hearing.
