A. Time periods vary from area to area, but generally most initial Social Security decisions are made within four months. If you are turned down and have applied for reconsideration it will generally take another four months to receive a decision. If you are turned down and have applied for a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge it could take up to one year before you have a decision. And, if you are turned down at the hearing level and have requested an Appeals Council review, it could take one year or more to receive the decision.
