It's Gotten Worse In Omaha
From the Omaha Journal-Star:
Five of Omaha attorney Tim Cuddigan's clients died this year waiting for Social Security disability decisions.
It's a long wait across the country, but Nebraskans wait longer than most.
Nebraskans who apply for disability insurance wait an average of two years for a final decision from the Social Security Administration. ...
In the past six months, while the national average improved, the average wait for a hearing in the Omaha office got longer. ...
A Social Security Administration spokesman said Omaha is slated to get a judge in the next round of hirings.
