Social Security Disability cases in Central Illinois are definitely moving faster than last year this time.

Social Security has hired more Administrative Law Judges and staff, and they are pushing cases to hearing faster.

It appears that it is taking 1.5 years to 2 years from applying to hearing for people from Peoria, Pontiac, Bloomington, Springfield, Decatur and Champaign, Illinois.

This is good news because when you are disabled and cannot work the faster the decision the better.

Hopefully, the time to hearing will drop even more.

Happy Fourth of July!
