    Lawyers agree

    Answered . Social Security has four categories of ways to request an expedited hearing in Social Security:

    Wounded Warrior - Where the disability arose out a military injury while on duty after October 2001.
    Terminal Illness - if your condition will cause death within the year.
    "Dire Need" - a DOCUMENTED inability to get food, shelter, or medication.
    Homicidal or Suicidal - DOCUMENTED statements you are homicidal or suicidal.

    Otherwise the only way a lawyer can speed up your hearing is to make sure that the file is ready to go and no extension is needed.

    Answered . Yes, a lawyer can make the process go faster in some cases where an on the record decision can be granted before hearing, or in other cases such as dire need, terminal illness, or homelessness. Not only can an experienced disability lawyer move your case as quickly as possible, but your chances of winning your case significantly increase if you have an attorney to guide you through the process and represent you at hearing.
