Social Security Disability Backlog in Florida
The Social Security Administration reports that the national average processing time for a Social Security Disability decision is now 442 days, which is down from 514 in September 2008.
While the Social Security Administration had attacked the disability backlog issue, applicants who live in Florida wait an average of twenty months for a hearing.
Our local congressional representatives have been instrumental in adding staff to the Tampa Bay Social Security offices and a new hearing office in St. Petersburg. We, at The Law Offices of Nancy L. Cavey, commend them for their efforts.
