Delays at Charleston OHA
News4.com reports on the dramatic delays in adjudicating disability claims in Charleston, SC. The local director of Crisis Ministries told the TV station that: "It boggles my mind that that process takes so long ... I don't understand. I just don't understand." The irony is that the article indicates that it takes only about 180 days to get a hearing in Charleston, which is well below the national average, although the article does mention that it sometimes takes up to a year to get a decision after a hearing.
