Nevada Social Security Disability

There are approximately 1.6 million residents living in the State of Nevada. Of this population, approximately 3.2 percent receive disability benefits from the Social Security Administration (SSA). In the coming year, there will be thousands of new Nevada Social Security Disability claims. Although some Nevada Social Security Disability applicants are able to obtain disability benefits in just a few short months, a large number of disability claimants must wait a year or more before being awarded the disability benefits they vitally need. This is due to the fact that the majority of applicants must appear before an administrative law judge before being awarded their disability benefits. Within the State of Nevada, it can take disability applicants an average of 443 days to have a hearing scheduled before an administrative law judge.

ODAR or the Offices of Disability Adjudication and Review, are the Social Security agency responsible for scheduling hearings before an administrative law judge. The area of Nevada that you live in will determine which ODAR office handles your disability hearing. It will also determine how long you must wait for your hearing to be scheduled.
