Ohio Social Security Disability

Each and every year, thousands of Ohio Social Security Disability applicants submit their disability applications to the Social Security Administration expecting to be approved for benefits in a matter of months. Unfortunately, nearly three-fourths of these applicants are denied at the initial stage of the application process and even more are denied at the initial reconsideration stage of appeals and have to request a hearing.

While some states are able to schedule disability hearings in a matter of months, almost all Ohio Social Security Disability applicants must wait more than a year to obtain a hearing before an ALJ. Depending on which area of the state you live in, it can take anywhere from 501 to 605 days to be scheduled for a disability hearing.

The SSA's Office of Disability Adjudication and Review, commonly referred to as ODAR, is the agency responsible for overseeing the SSA's Social Security Disability hearings. The area in which you live determines which ODAR office handles your Social Security Disability case, and will also play a role in how long you will have to wait before you have your case heard before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ).
