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.
