Why does it take so long to get a hearing?
It takes so long to get a Social Security hearing for two reasons. The first is there are enormous number of people applying for these benefits. And the second reason is that the federal government has not funded the Social Security Administration enough to carry enough people resources available to make the system more efficient.
