Once you receive the date of your appeal hearing, you may find that you cannot wait that long to receive disability benefits—due to financial or medical strain. If you find yourself in this situation, you can request a congressional inquiry. To do so, call your local congressperson to explain the extreme nature of your circumstances. If he or she feels it necessary, they can intervene with the ODAR on your behalf to expedite your claim. Your congressperson can be contacted at:
