Hi Everyone,
     I am pleased to announce that we have the state pages up and running.  Simply click on "Home Page" at the top of the forum or go to www.ssdfacts.com to view the statistics for your state.  Each state has wait times and information for each stage of the application process.  It is resource unlike any I have seen.  Please take a look!

Do not be denied-take it to the limit

Marci,
After looking at the statistics for the states I am astounded.  The state information lets the SSD claimant know what they are to expect regardless which stage the member is at in the process. The state pages will help to reduce the members SSD claimants anxiety, because the member gets a peek at the state DDS decisions for initial and reconsideration as well as Administrative Law Judges. And I have seen the Appeals Counsel date on the site as well.

housewife: I have never seen any stats on a state-by-state basis for decision times - only a national basis. It would be good info to know. But sometimes it feels like "if they told you, they would have to kill you"  Cheesy

Juskev, there are an entirely different set of stats for the EST's. We don't post them because they aren't tied to any particular state. If you want to send me your email address by PM, I'll run the EST stats for you and send back by email.

I need to send out a HUGE THANK YOU to qvivian who has taken over the statistics pages.  They are updated with the most recent information available.  As a matter of fact the newest stats just came out a day or two ago so they are fresh off the press.

This is a HUGE endeavor and I am thrilled to have her taking care of this! 

To check your stats just go here:  www.ssdfacts.com and click your state.

Again a HUGE thank you to qvivian who is working HARD behind the scenes to update the site and fix all the virtual duct tape that holds the site together.

She has updated the state statistics to the most current available as of today - 9/29/2012 - 3/29/2013
