Appleton Disability Hearings
If your claim is denied at the initial and reconsideration stages of the application process, you will have to attend a hearing at the Milwaukee hearing office. An Appleton disability attorney will have attended numerous hearings at this office in the past on behalf of other claimants and could prove to be valuable during your hearing as well.
Appleton is 88 miles away from Milwaukee. Since the hearing office is more than 75 miles away from Appleton, the SSA will reimburse the cost of travelling to your hearing.
It takes almost a year to have a disability hearing scheduled. However, if you are facing a difficult financial or medical condition, it is possible to have your hearing scheduled sooner. You will have to contact your congressperson to see if he or she would be willing to intervene in order to have your hearing scheduled sooner.
