Shut out of Social Security

Mike Chalmers of The News Journal in Wilmington, Del., found a pattern of "denial and delay" among administrative law judges who have the power to grant or deny Social Security benefits to disabled workers in Delaware, Maryland and Virginia. The News Journal "analyzed four years of decisions by ALJ in every state, more than 1.7 million records that show a huge disparity in how disability cases are decided by hearing office and region." The Social Security Administration refused to release information on complaints filed against the judges.
