Detroit Disability Judges Are Tough
When your Social Security Disability case goes to the level of a hearing with a judge, you’re up against a difficult system.
Numbers from early 2018 show how tough the judges can be:
- It took an average of 19 months to get a hearing with a Michigan judge.
- Michigan judges approved benefits 50% of the time.
- Judges in Detroit only approved benefits 44% of the time.
- Judges in Oak Park only approved benefits 52% of the time.
- Judges in Livonia only approved benefits 50% of the time.
