After you get your decision from the Administrative Law Judge, you should call your Social Security disability attorney to see if they have received a copy too. Both copies are usually mailed out on the same day. But, sometimes the hearing office makes a mistake and your attorney doesn’t receive a copy. When this happens, your attorney won’t know the status of your case, so make sure you let them know. If the decision has an error that needs to be corrected, your attorney will want to know and get started on the appeal or fixing the problem.
What will happen if you lose at this hearing?
Sometimes even well-prepared and experienced attorneys lose cases that are solid. It’s not always clear why this happens, but it does. But you almost always have a right to appeal. If you are denied benefits, make sure that you talk to your Social Security disability attorney as soon as possible to discuss appealing your case. You must file an appeal within 60 days of the decision or you will lose your legal right to appeal.
