Here is another article, this one at the AARP website which comments on the delays in Social Security Disability matters. I also looked at that website at what people are saying about it on the message board or forum on the issue. This is a national problem and part of the blame is with underfunding of the hearing process. Many times in a workers comp case we also look into Social Security disability especially when it may be difficult or impossible to return to any work after an injury. Having to wait so long just for a hearing is astounding.
