North Carolina Social Security Disability

are currently more than 300,000 North Carolina residents receiving Social Security Disability benefits. While the initial stage of the application process only takes three to four months to complete, most North Carolina Social Security Disability recipients wait a year or more before receiving their first disability payment. This is due to the fact the most cases are approved until the hearing stage. It can take a North Carolina Social Security Disability applicant anywhere from 338 to 548 days to be scheduled for a disability hearing. It then takes another 45 to 90 days to receive notice of the outcome of that hearing.

The Office of Disability Adjudication and Review is the Social Security agency in charge of managing disability hearings for Social Security Disability applicants. Each state has a multiple ODAR offices managing the state's Social Security Disability caseload. The part of North Carolina that you live in is what determines which ODAR office will handle your Social Security Disability case, as well as how long you will have to wait to have your case heard before an Administrative Law Judge.
