1 Answers. Asked on Apr 09th, 2015 on Social Security Disability - Florida
More details to this question:
I am a 100% service connected veteran currently at the hearing level for SSDI. My VA rating is for PTSD. I have requested an on the record decision for my SSDI case. Is the ODAR my case is assigned to required to respond in the event this request is not granted? Also, is there a better way for me to obtain information about my on the record decision request b eyond speaking to the ODAR receptionist?

I can only assume you are not represented.  Calling the receptionist is not going to speed it up, and will not help.  A decision will be made on your "on the record" request at some point.  Each office handles this differently around the country.  Sometimes you receive a letter, but if anything is going to slip through the cracks - it would be that letter saying "you're on the record" request is denied.

So back to your question - yes, no doubt in the policy manuals somewhere - they are required to respond.  When and if they will is anybody's guess.  

You don't lose your place "in line" if they don't approve the on the record request.  There are some things you can control - and this isn't one of them.

My hope is that your answer on this question arrives in the mail as a fully favorable decision.

Social Security Disability
If you're suffering from a disability that prevents you from working, you may be entitled to benefits under Social Security disability insurance (SSD or SSDI). Social Security disability attorneys can work with you to file your application for benefits. Because the Social Security Administration routinely denies the majority of initial claims, your SSD lawyers can also prepare for your hearing before an administrative law judge, attend all hearings, advocate on your behalf and file an appeal if your application has been denied. Hire an SSDI law firm as soon as you need to apply for SSDI. The faster your application is approved, the more quickly you will begin to receive benefits.
