An Ocala disability lawyer will inform you that there are two similarities between state agency decisions about your Social Security disability claim and decisions made by Administrative Law Judges (ALJs):
But important differences exist as to how each agency will make that determination:
The Social Security Administration has statistics about how often state agencies approved benefits for claimants alleging back injuries and how often administrative law judges approved them. For claimants of all ages, state disability agencies approved them 11 percent of the time and administrative law judge approved them 75 percent of the time. For claimants under 50 years old, state agencies approved them just two percent of the time, and administrative law judges approved them 68 percent of the time.
