Social Security Disability Benefits Awarded Disparately Across the US Reports www.social-security-lawyers.net
Date:6/3/2009

CALABASAS, Calif., June 3 /PRNewswire/ -- In a recent survey of over 200 social security lawyers, www.social-security-lawyers.net found a significant disparity of SSDI awards based upon geographic location. Though SSDI is administered on a federal level, there appears to be a wide variance in the application of SSDI guidelines by adjudicators. While some of these guidelines are based upon geographic economies, the variance seems to suggest a more indiscriminate application of awards.

For instance, the award for a certain disability may change depending on the district within the nation. A disability claim may be awarded in a certain district and be rejected in another. Even when a disability is awarded in two distinct districts, the amount of the award may be significantly higher or lower. The initial results of the survey were revealed after www.social-security-lawyers.net conducted a survey of its several hundred social security lawyer members.

The study seems to indicate little reason for the disparity except for the attitude of the judge for the hearing. While some judges appear liberal and award something for most significant ailments, other, more conservative judges seem to apply these guidelines more rigidly; rejecting these same claims, and demanding far more documentation.

While these findings are preliminary they may indicate flaws within the Social Security Disability Insurance system. Additional findings from the study may indicate more specific causes for these variances.
