Social Security Disability Judges

Do you have a Social Security disability hearing scheduled? Curious about the judge who was randomly chosen for your hearing? You can look up your judge at and find out the judge’s approval and denial rates. Be prepared for a shock — approval rates vary wildly among judges. In North Texas, approval rates range from under 10% to over 70% depending on which judge you get.

North Texas has three hearing offices — Dallas DowntownDallas North, and Fort Worth.

Here is a description from the website:

This site is updated monthly with the most current data available from the Social Security Administration (SSA) and the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR). All statistical information on the site is for the current fiscal year. The United States Government fiscal year is from October 1st – September 30th.

The Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR) has over 1600 Administrative Law Judges (ALJs) that conduct hearings and issue decisions for the Social Security Administration (SSA). There are over 160 ODAR hearing offices in the country. This site contains detailed information on every ODAR office and every ALJ including: hearing wait time averages, hearing result summaries (dismissed, approved or denied), judges case loads, and much more.

If you have a hearing scheduled for a Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claim, this site has valuable information that you should know about. You can search this data using the judge’s name, or you can view all states and then select a state and a city.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
