Maryland Social Security Disability

In Maryland, nearly seventy percent of the disability claims received by the SSA will be denied during the initial stage of the application process. This means that about two-thirds of the applicants who apply for disability benefits in Maryland will need to pursue the lengthy and complicated disability appeal process in order to obtain the benefits they may be rightfully entitled to. The majority of applicants must undergo a disability hearing before an administrative law judge in order to obtain the disability benefits they need. In the State of Maryland, it can take an applicant well over a year to be scheduled for a disability hearing.

The SSA's Office of Disability Adjudication Review (ODAR) is the agency responsible for scheduling disability hearings before an administrative law judge. The area of Maryland that you live in determines which ODAR office handles your particular disability case and how long you will have to wait for your hearing to be scheduled. The ODAR offices that handle the hearings for Maryland Social Security Disability applicants are as follows:
