Ordinarily, the judge, after a social security hearing do not tell you if you’ve won or lost. One of the reasons for that is they don’t want to have a problem in their courtroom. The other is that they really want to review all of the evidence. They will reach an opinion generally 2-4 months after your hearing. They will issue a written opinion. If, in fact, you win in front of the judge, hopefully you will, your payments will start within a month or two thereafter, and you’ll get all your back payments. If it’s been 24 months since your onset date of disability, you will also get Medicare if you’re making an SSDI application.
