Social Security Is Hiring Judges. Will It Matter?

Apr 22, 2012 Comments Off on Social Security Is Hiring Judges. Will It Matter? by

The Social Security Administration has been hiring Administrative Law Judges in the past week. I wouldn’t get too excited about this if I were a Social Security claimant awaiting a hearing. The biggest bottleneck at the moment is not the judges. It’s their support staff. Social Security isn’t hiring more support staff. In fact, they’re not fully replacing support staff who leave. Unfortunately, hiring more judges may do little or nothing about the backlog if no more support staff is hired.
