Chicago Tribune and Indy Star Report Extreme Delays in Indiana

The Chicago Tribune reports on Sunday Story in the Indianapolis Star:

Indiana residents unable to work because of medical or psychiatric ills are forced to wait far longer than most Americans for disability payments, putting them at greater risk of losing their cars or homes.

Indiana has one of the nation’s worst records for processing disability claims that on average provide recipients with $1,000 a month in financial assistance, The Indianapolis Star reported in Sunday’s editions.

The state’s applicants for Social Security disability or Supplemental Security Income wait an average of 749 days between filing for disability until they get a hearing before an administrative judge.
