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 DisabilityJudges.com 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.
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.
