The judge on your disability hearing is a secret no more.

Sorry to say but there is no “secret” to getting your claim heard faster than the next person in line. With few exceptions, the system usually handles claims on a “first come – first served” basis. I always tell people to think of grocery shopping and approaching the checkout with a full cart of groceries only to find 10 people with full grocery carts in front of you. You will have to wait until those people get through the checkout before you get to check out. The same thing happens in this Social Security disability system. The judges are very busy and their offices are not sitting idly by waiting for any particular case to come in. Instead, when a new case does come in, it usually gets added to the bottom of the docket and moves up slowly as each case in front of it is resolved (with some exceptions.) By the way, the exceptions usually involve some pretty severe medical conditions that most people would be grateful not to have so, try to stay patient wait for your place in line to come.
