Cedar Park Disability Hearings
Almost two-thirds of claimants are denied benefits during the initial application stage and almost 90% of request for reconsiderations are denied as well. If your claim falls among these, then you will have to wait for a hearing with an administrative law judge. All Cedar Park residents will have their hearings held at the Dallas Downtown Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR). Since Cedar is more than 180 miles away from Dallas, the SSA will reimburse the cost of travelling to the hearing. If you are unable to travel long distances due to your disability, you may want to request for a video hearing.
Due to the heavy backlog of cases, it can take up to a year to have a hearing scheduled with the Downtown Dallas ODAR office. To see if it is possible to have your hearing scheduled sooner, you can contact your local congressman. However, do keep in mind, very rarely is a request to have a hearing held sooner granted. The congressman's address for the Cedar Park area is:
1717 N Interstate Highway 35
Round Rock, TX 7866
