People often want to know how long the grievance process will take. In Santa Clara County, in the year 2014, the shortest amount of time it took was just over 2 months. The longest amount of time any case to resolve was almost 10 months. In our experience, it’s quite common for a case to take 9-12 months. But, as you see, there is a great deal of flexibility, time-wise. A case can be made to resolve quickly or slowly, depending on the particular needs of the client and case.
Once your hearing is complete, you will not get the decision right away. The hearing officer writes a recommended decision and submits that recommendation to the head of SSA. Then that person either adopts or rejects the recommendation. In Santa Clara County, at least for the year 2014, it was typical for the results to come back within 3 weeks of the hearing.
