Here are the hearing times process numbers for a the offices where I have most of my hearings. According to Social Security, these numbers represent the “average number of days until final disposition of the hearing request.” You can check all of the hearing office processing times at the following link, by clicking here to access Social Security’s website.
The numbers for Michigan Social Security Disability and SSI cases are all over the map.
Grand Rapids, Michigan: 441 days.
This paces Grand Rapids ODAR as the 160th fastest hearing office Social Security has. In other words, there are only five other offices that take longer to process a case from the hearing request until a decision is made. Most of my Ionia County and Kent County, Michigan cases go to the Grand Rapids ODAR.
Lansing, Michigan: 290 days.
This office places 31 out of 165 offices around the country. The Lansing ODAR has really improved its ranking in the last 24 months. Lansing and Grand Rapids would consistently both find themselves in the bottom ten up until recently.
Mount Pleasant, Michigan: 369 days.
It is ranked 109/165. It seems like their processing time has been slipping lately.
