Flower Mound Disability Hearings
Most disability claims are denied at both the initial claim and request for reconsideration stages of the disability application process. Fortunately, most claims have a good chance of being approved at the disability hearing. The disability hearing presents an opportunity for you to explain in person to an administrative law judge (ALJ) why you need disability benefits. All Flower Mound residents will have their hearings held at the North Dallas Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR).
It can take up to a year to have a hearing scheduled with the Dallas ODAR office due to a heavy volume of cases. In rare circumstances, your local congressman will be able to intervene on your behalf to have your hearing scheduled sooner. The address for the congressman for the Flower Mound area is:
1660 South Stemmons Freeway
Lewisville, TX 75067
