Social Security Judges’ denial percentages

How likely is your  judge to approve your Social Security disability case? Better that 50%? Isn’t this information you want to know before you walk into your hearing? Now this information is a click away!

Some words of warning:

  1. As in the stock market, “prior results are no guarantee of future performance.” Just because a judge approves say, 65 percent of cases, does not mean you have a 65% chance of winning.
  2. Your case is as good or as bad as the evidence in your file. These statistics will not tell you where the problems are in your case, or what you should do to resolve them.
  3. To increase your chances of winning, the best advice I can give you is to work with an experienced attorney.

Well, enough procrastinating. Here is the link to look up your judge’s approval / denial stats: ALJ Disposition Data.
