So I had my hearing on November 10th before the judge. My attorney said it would take about a month to get an answer, two, if the court wanted me to see another psychologist which they did so I was hoping I would have an answer any day now so I called Social Security and the woman on the phone told me the average wait time for an answer was 3 1/2 months. She told me not to expect an answer before March 27. When I explained to her that that would put me at late February she told me 3 1/2 months for the decision and a month before I actually get the money if I win. I will be 62 in April so technically I could apply for my regular Social Security benefits now even though I wouldn't get it until June. The problem is I can't apply for it right now because I am waiting for a decision on the disability. I am afraid if I wait until March for an answer and the answer is "no" then I will mess up the timeline for my regular Social Security.
