About 600 Social Security Disability Cases Sent To Missouri

(Springfield, IL) — Illinois is so overloaded with social security disability claims that some cases are being sent out of state. The Department of Human Services says 600 cases have been handed over to Missouri. Officials say with the heavy state caseload, the wait could take six months for a decision, while Missouri can hear cases right away. DHS leaders added that Social Security Administration procedures are identical for all states.
