Your Call Will Be Answered in 426 Days

The other day I came across some statistics regarding Social Security disability.  Apparently there is a backlog of over 700,000 people waiting for hearings regarding their application for benefits and the average wait time is 426 days.  That’s astounding.

I know of a few people who are in the process of applying for benefits.  It’s a frustrating process to say the least.  Hopefully they will remain sane through the process.
