Webinar Recording: Social Security — Are Your Employees Still Waiting?

DMECResources, Tools & Tactics Archives

Less than half of the Social Security claims submitted in 2017 will be approved, and that number keeps decreasing year over year. With over one million claims awaiting an Administrative Law Judge Hearing, knowing the basics of the Social Security process can help you and your employees navigate this process more effectively. In this session, we explored the root cause and impact of the increased hearing level wait times, and also walked through the on-the-record (OTR) review process, and other avenues you can utilize to help shorten wait times.
