Upper Peninsula 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 showed 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.
- It took an average of more than 20 months to get a hearing with a Wisconsin judge.
- Judges in Milwaukee who handle Upper Peninsula cases only approved benefits 41% of the time.
With so many people getting turned down, it makes sense to get an experienced law firm to help you apply or appeal for disability benefits. And no firm in Michigan is bigger or more experienced in Social Security Disability cases than Levine Benjamin.
