It is always a pleasure to call a client with the news that his or her Social Security disability claim has been granted at the hearing level with an on the record (OTR) decision.
With the claim granted, there is no further wait for a hearing, and the inevitable stress from worrying about the outcome of the claim comes to an end. It is welcome news.
It is even better to make that call just before Christmas. I just made one such phone call, and it really does put you in the Christmas spirit.
