SSD Backlog Continues

The SSA released its quarterly data, and more than 1.1 million people are now waiting an average of 583 days for a hearing before an administrative law judge (ALJ).

Nearly 50% of hearing offices report wait times of over 600 days, including 14 offices whose wait times exceed 700 days.  Only 3 hearing offices had wait times over 600 days in 2015.

Congress designated $90 million in the federal budget to help address the disability backlog by hiring additional ALJs and SSA staff.
