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.
