Dire Need Cases
Applying for disability benefits can be a long and difficult process. Some applicants find that their financial or medical situation deteriorates significantly while they are waiting for a hearing. Social Security understands that there are situations where an applicant may be in dire need of benefits.
You should understand that most people in need of disability benefits are struggling financially and with health issues, so Social Security places a high threshold on what they consider dire need.
If you are in dire need of assistance, our social security experts can draft a dire need memorandum and make sure Social Security is aware of your circumstances. Sometimes this is all that is needed to get the hearing office to issue an on the record decision in your favor.
