Alexandria Disability Hearings
All Alexandria disability applicants will have to go to the Washington DC hearing office for their disability hearing. When attending the hearing it is highly recommended that you have a disability attorney or advocate accompany you. Your attorney will be able to prepare your case on your behalf and questions any expert witnesses used against you by the SSA.Unfortunately due to the heavy backlog of disability cases it can take over a year to have a hearing scheduled with the DC office. If your are in an extreme financial situation, then you can contact your local congressman to see if he can intervene to have your hearing scheduled sooner.
