Average Processing Time from Request for Hearing to Decision

Published on January 21st, 2015

The Social Security Administration has 165 offices nationwide which hold hearings. The Orland Park/South Suburban office is the most efficient of the local hearing offices. It ranks #10 nationally with an average processing time of 300 days. Chicago (#88), Evanston (#95) and Oak Brook Terrance (#100) require 381 to 395 days respectively. This reflects a slight decrease in performance over the past few years, probably due to an influx of additional claims filed during the recession.

I am so happy! Thank you for helping me with my case. You made everything go so smoothly. No I know why you are 'number one' in Chicago. I will surely send qualified friends and family your way when they need your help. Thanks again.
