It can take a while. Every agency of our govt. is chronically underfunded and struggling to keep up with its workload because nobody wants to pay taxes. If people go to the Post Office or the DMV and they don't have to wait in line for half an hour, they think the govt. is wasting their tax dollars.
The good thing is that when they finally do approve your case, they pay back-pay. When my wife was found disabled (breast cancer) she got 10 months of back benefits all at once.
Yes, if you're turned down you are entitled to a hearing. There are even law firms now that specialize in disability cases, but I'd avoid them as much as possible.

Call and ask the nearest office.
