Re: on the record decision

Good post vannort54. I am curious about this also. Tell me if I have this right. An on the record decision is where the ALJ reviews your claim and makes a favorable decision on your behalf after reviewing your medical records w/o you physically having to appear at the hearing at one of the ODAR locations? Is this correct? My SSDI rep. said they were going to request an on the record decision first, but that there are really no guarantees.

an otr review is when you have a very strong case and have medical records to back it up it is done after you or your attorney puts in for it office of the The Office of Disability Adjudication and Review or oadr a alj judge will look over your file just before your hearing if he see that there is enough evidence he will grand your disability my otr was done when a senior attorney looked at mine and granted it don"t forget alj judges are not really judges they are attorneys appointed by ssa to over see hearings if the judge or senior dose not approve your request you go to your hearing as schedule if i had to go to a hearing it would of taken two more years

my onset date 12/8/04 but orginally I had said it was 1/02/04 but social security sad it was based on the medical evidence recieved they estabilished the date at a later time. I think I probably could have fought it, but chose not to.
I had work experience over 20 years. My approval letter was stamped for Sep 28, 2007. I did recieve quite a lot of backpay , they deposited it directly into my bank account.

Wow, 40 years. That is enough...I don't blame you vannort54. I had 25 service years with my last employer. My goal was to make it to 37 years (age 62) but I did not make it unfortunately. LOL

Re: on the record decision

Applied April 2009, turned down Aug 2009 and applied for hearing. No reconsideration necessary in NY. While waiting for hearing, I recieved word in March 2010 that my request for hearing was dismissed and ALJ found me fully favorable. Did use a lawyer, got my backpay to the expected date and within 2 weeks recieved backpay and monthly checks thereafter. I had very good doctor notes and lawyer was very optimistic in a favorable decision. I was told it was an on the record decision. I had not even known of that possibility.....as lawyer didn't share that with me. Supposedly if a case is a slam dunk and lawyer KNOWS it is a given you will win, the lawyer can make that request. I believe (?) ALJ's don't like to be bothered with such requests unless it is pretty much a sure thing. It was best my lawyer didn't share that with me, as I would have been flipping out wondering when/if it was a possibility. Sure shocked the h*ll out of me when that letter (rather thick envelope) arrived! I didn't even know that was a possibility.

Good Luck to all.

Forgot to mention that I was 49 at the time, and had a well paying job for 21yrs. Judge made note in his report that due to my age and lack of other experiences in other jobs, he knew it would be pretty impossible for me to find another job with that payrate and lack of experience. Also no college education as well.
