I work for a private disability insurer. We make decisions on claims in about 42-60 days. Appeals of denials are required by law to be done in 45 days. Yet the social security administration takes up to six months, sometimes longer, to make decisions, and they are typically only done based on "listings" that require very little thought. Appeals of THEIR denials literally take YEARS. The government is not bound by time standards that the same government imposes on private insurers. Then, once approved, the individual can ride free on the taxpayer for the rest of his life. They never check to see if the person is working under the table, for himself, or just capable of finding a job but not bothering to do so...
