Q: Hi, I wanted to find out what happens next after my SSDI case is granted through Federal Civil court.
court GRANTS Plaintiff’s motion for summary judgment and DENIES Defendant’s motion (I don't have a lawyer)
A: If you have a lawyer who represented you in Federal Court you should ask them. Typically this means that the Court has found in your favor in terms of the appeal. This does not necessarily mean that you have won your overall claim for benefits. Read through the Court's order. It will usually say something about sending the case back to Social Security for a new decision and will also sometimes include specific instructions that Social Security must follow.
