Welcome! This site is written for Social Security disability claimants, for their legal representatives, and for the network of people involved in the Social Security disability claim process. I hope you find it helpful.
Free Claim Review

I have written before about the backlog at the Maine Disability Determination Services, particularly at Reconsideration, since initial claims are given priority. Now, some Reconsideration claims are being routed to the Vermont DDS to help ease the work load.

These claims, if denied again at Reconsideration and appealed, will have hearings in Maine. But the Reconsideration rewiew is happening in Vermont, and disability examiners are being assigned much quicker than in Maine.
