You are devastated to hear that your Social Security Disability application has been denied. Where do you go from here? Your next move may be an appeal. In New Hampshire, this may mean a visit to Manchester.
The New Hampshire Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR), located in downtown Manchester, has seven different administrative law judges (ALJ) who handle Social Security Disability appeals and Supplemental Security Income hearings.

Although each appeal is handled on a case-by-case basis and every judge reviews and decides their cases based on individual facts, there is still a good way to better understand your chances for a quick and definitive decision. The Social Security Administration provides information on the number of dismissals, denials, and approvals made by judges in every ODAR office in the country. With around 700,000 cases heard nationally each year and an approval rate of approximately 40%, it is in your best interest to make sure you are prepared for your appeal.
