Q:
How long will it take for a hearing to be held, a decision to be issued and for benefits to be paid?

A:

A long time.   Few things move slower than the Federal Government.  Lately, hearings are held about four months to eighteen months from the date a person requests one.  After the hearing, it takes an average of about two to three months for a decision to be issued by a judge.  After that, if you win, it takes a month or two for current benefits to begin.
