3.3 Million Applications Anticipated in 2010 | Florida SSD Attorney
The Social Security Administration anticipates that more that 3.3 million Social Security Disability applications will be filed in the year 2010. This represents over a 700,000 increase on a yearly basis since 2008. As you can imagine, this increase in number of cases further slows down the Social Security Disability application process. Social Security does have a plan to eliminate the backlog of hearing requests by 2013, but this significant number of annual increases in Social Security Disability applications will definitely slow the process down.
