One of the most distressing situations facing Social Security applicants are the very long delays for those waiting for hearings after they were initially denied benefits. Each month the list grows. Many have died awaiting hearings. From September 2015 to September 2016 it was reported that many individuals had waited over 400 days for a hearing. 

It appears that a similar situation is currently present in the VA where again long waits to be seen are not unusual. 

It is important to remember that using the services of an attorney who has long experience in handling Social Security disability cases is very important since he understands the complex issues involved and can increase your chances of a successful outcome. 

Hopefully, with the new administration in place, things may improve. Only time will tell.
