Improve the Timeliness and Quality of the Disability Process

SSA is facing a considerable increase in initial and reconsideration disability claims, resulting in a significant backlog. The Agency received about 3.2 million initial claims and more than 832,000 reconsideration claims in Fiscal Year 2012. In addition, in June 2013, SSA had over 731,000 initial disability claims pending.

The following reports address efforts to reduce this backlog and improve the timeliness and quality of the disability process.
