The wait period for SSDI or SSI hearings has increased dramatically

New reports show that as of 2012 the processing time for a hearing before an ALJ for a Social Security Disability hearing has crept up to 400 days.  This is an incredibly long amount of time for disabled individuals to wait for a decision by an ALJ on their Social Security Disability claim.  Unfortunately, this has caused severe strain on these individuals and their families.  This is also coupled with the fact that approval ratings have gone down.  In 2005, the approval rating for ALJs was 72 percent whereas in 2013 the approval rating was 56%.  Given these numbers, if you are disabled and no longer able to work, you should contact an attorney that has experience practicing before the Social Security Administration immediately.
