Virginia Beach Disability Hearings
The disability hearing is the stage in the application process where most disability claims are approved. During the disability hearing, you will have the opportunity to present evidence and explain to an administrative law judge why you need disability benefits. If you have not yet hired a disability attorney, you should do so before attending your hearing.
All Virginia Beach residents will have their hearings held at the Norfolk, VA disability hearing office. The wait time to have a hearing scheduled with the Norfolk office is over a year.
However, it can be unfeasible for people in a dire situation to wait that long. If you are in a very difficult financial or medical situation, you can contact your local congressman to see if it is possible to have your hearing scheduled sooner.
