Long wait from hearing notice to hearing date?
« on: May 17, 2017, 06:14:55 PM »
I was notified on 2.14.17 that my hearing is set for 6.27.17.  Anyone else have such a long wait?  My anxiety is starting up the closer I get to the one month mark. 

How do you manage sanity with a 4 1/2 month wait?  And my judge isn't a high approver. 

Welcome any thoughts on this!

Thats about average I think.  Mine was just under 5 months wait.

Wow... my attorney said the wait was only about a month from notice to hearing,  and then poof - mine was the first one that started going out that far.

Maybe in some areas, the difference is about a month; yours seems the norm...I think someone on here mentioned that her area of Hawaii only had a month or so wait.

The only thing you can do is keep on doing what you've been doing (and unfortunately when the hearing is over, there's a long wait for a decision). As difficult as it may seem, you need to find other things to focus on.

Los Angeles, CA

Short Version: Filed in June 2012 at age 46; major depression + general anxiety. Denied all the way through. Fed district court remanded, 2nd hearing delayed twice (11 months total delay). Bench approval at remand hearing in March 2017. Took six months to receive most of back pay.

This entire process is "hurry up and wait"   Nothing moves fast.  No great information for you, just wish you good luck!
