The allowance rate on the initial claim is 30 % and less than 5% on the Reconsideration but the allowance rate with the Judges is 44% so your best chance is with the ALJ. The key to getting approved is be prepared. You need a Rep that is interested in your case and SSA is not just a sideline. You and YOUR Rep need to Know the requirements for entitlement : the decision is based on age, education, vocational background and your DISABILITY. The judges in the Tupelo office are good judges I have always found Judge Sartor to be respectfully to me and the Claimant. She, as well as the other Judges, will try to give you the benefit of doubt but they cannot approve your disability if you do not have medical evidence to support YOUR Case- SSA will tell you that you must prove that you are disabled. No i have not won all my cases with her or the others but when the Hearing was over I knew and the Claimant knew that the decision would be fair and based on the evidence. This is the best shot at approval that you got so get a GOOD REP and be prepared.

This judge is a thorough and dispassionate lady. She expects representatives to know the file and to have all evidence in the record in advance of a hearing unless you have a very good reason why there is a delay. If you believe a consultative exam should be scheduled, move for same a few months before a hearing. This judge is conservative.

This judge is a very dispassionate yet thorough lady. She is conservative. She expects representatives to have all medical and other evidence in the record before a hearing unless you have very good cause why the evidence is not already in the record. If you think a consultative exam is in order, make a motion a couple months before a hearing for same. Don't wait.

I really feel as if this Judge should be investigated. There is no way a ALJ should have statistics that read 1,842 cases, 1,550 decesions, 1,116 denials, and 434 approved. For the Fisical year as of 05/19/16, this judge has a 20% approval rating, and 63% Denied, 17% dismissed. Numbers don't lie. Due to incurable illness and you are in a wheelchair, receiving home health 3- 5 days a week, a service dog for PTSD, can't grip or hold items well anymore, but I was given unfavorable decision..especially when there is more than enough evidence to support it. Not being able to work for almost 3 yrs, and yet you still are given an Unfavorable Decision..Seriously?? Than your lawyer calls to ask if you want to appeal or start over...You should not have to fight so hard to get disabiltiy if you truly are deserving of it, and especially when you worked the last 25 yrs previous to your diagnosis. This is ridiculous!!

Judge: Sabrina M Tilley
5/9/2016 1:47:11 PM



It is my opinion that the administrative law judges for the SSA are not always, if at all, neutral in the decisions they make on disability claims. It would appear, from what I have found out, that if you want to be approved to receive your disability, you cannot be an honestly disabled person who used to be a full-time, hard-working employee! You have to be an alcoholic, drug addict or a very talented actor! It is my opinion that they make their decisions with prejudice, and they, depending on which law judge you get, do not always consider the opinions of the medical professionals, or the rehabilitation counselors! I believe that they look at a claimant and if they look healthy and able to work, they totally disregard the medical and/or mental opinions given to SSA! Just because a claimant looks healthy and able to work does not mean anything, because they could be living with constant and chronic pain every day of their lives. I do not believe, from what I know of Ms. Tilley, that she gives fair assessment to the medical opinions and assessments of professionals! I'm wondering what is her reasoning for her negative decisions? I'm not giving my name because my son is totally disabled from his neck down to his toes from injuries, surgeries and birth defects, but was recently denied benefits because he, in her opinion, could do a job sitting down, even though the rehab counselor said "no" to that question when she put the question to him! I feel that she had no legal standing to overrule his professional opinion, as well as all of the recommendations made to SSA by his medical doctors! I wonder how many other times she has made wrong decisions like this one, and why?


Judge: Thomas W Erwin
3/27/2016 1:51:30 PM



i was told how "fair this judge is" i actually felt like that may be true..until the day we met. he heard my son's case, with OBVIOUS bias. we were unrepresented, but had very good evidence. several providers didn't think we needed an attorney, because it is so clear that my son is disabled. from the very first question, i knew we were in trouble. this judge clearly believed that my son had concocted this idea, to what"get rich quick"? by social security?? his mind was made up before our hearing, and what he based that decision on, i have absolutely no idea. it certainly was not, evidence, or law!!! i have NOW retained an attorney for my son. it is a shame that this has become the racket that it has. i only fear i have wasted precious time that my son DOES NOT HAVE!!!!

This judge will turn you down. She will be nice to your face but she's looking to deny your claim if she can even if your evidence is good. The Greenville ODAR is bringing in a lot of low-paying judges and she follows the party line; deny as many as you can.

It wasn't to be talking down on the judge. I just speak the truth that's what type of person I am. I have the right and I never post comments but I'm just fed up. Sorry. I just hope that it was her decision and nobody else's cause I felt that it was a friendship with a doctor or 2. I just hope and pray that my new judge is fair. Not saying it wasn't a fair hearing but all I'm saying is that it was a rough 3 yrs and I can't do it again. I don't know if they don't like you to receive your back pay or what.

excellent judge, gave bench decision in one case and very fair in the other one as well. would love to work with her again. She had reviewed the case before sitting down that day and had her questions ready and then turned the case over for any additional questioning.

This judge by far is a joke!!! My husband waited 2 years to go in front of this thing. He knocked off every job that the worker recommend and still denied him disability anyway ... Hey you , my husband worked every credit out not YOU !!! My husband is DISABLED!!! I hope and pray that you and yours have the kind of life and holidays as shity as ours !!!!!!!!!!! Thank you for destroying lives


Judge: Michelle Wolfe
11/22/2014 4:44:11 AM

Judge: Michelle Wolfe
11/3/2014 9:16:00 AM



A claimant with end stage cancer was denied benefits by Judge Wolfe. A blood clot in the cancerous organ came loose and caused a stroke, killing the claimant. The records were in order for the Judge to find the claimant disabled at step 3 or step 5. She chose otherwise. The case is now on appeal. In a year or so, perhaps never, the case will be remanded. One thing is certain, a deserving claimant was denied benefits. Remember Judge Wolfe every time you hear about the "billion dollar judges" awarding benefits and fraudulentt disability claims. As with most things, there are two sides to every story. Since this side of the story is not as glamorous, it doesn't get told.


Judge: Robert B Bowling
10/29/2014 3:35:01 PM



this judge should only have - stars to evaluate his judicial worthiness, You sir are completely heartless and uncaring. I watch my dear friend suffer agonizing, unrelenting and unimaginable pain on a daily basis as she was unfortunate enough to develop reflex sympathetic dystrophy along with other disabling ailments, yet you in your infinite wisdom and understanding of social security law and rules state that although her impairments are severe and affect her ability to perform work related activity you can still find reason not to award her deserving and much needed benefits. How can that be?????


Judge: Michelle Wolfe
10/21/2014 8:49:06 AM



Michelle wolf should be investigated to see if she gets paid to deny real people with real disabilities. I had my hearing with her mind you i am already 100 percent total and permanent form the military. She refused to look at all the evidence. She even dismissed social security's own doctors who evaluated me and the voc rehab lady who said i could do no work. I feel since i get va compensation she was biased against me in the first place in hearing for 2 hours she did not ask much questions. How can a judge not take into consideration their own evaluators? plus 900 pages of medical notes. someone should question why she has a 17% percent approval rate the lowest rating for ssa judges in the entire country. does she think everyone is trying to screw the system? we are all not lying burdens on society. we have real medical and psychological problems. The docs says low tress and no interaction with people so how can i work? docs say must be able to take breaks when needed and may miss up to 4 days of work a week even voc rehab lady said part time sedentary work copy machine operator really? claims jobs open for this in pa 425 where i checked unemployment and Google jobs none in this job description. She refused any rebuttal and request for information from my attorneys.... her words were i dont have too give it to you....she picked what she wanted out of my records and twisted it around and claimed i had not gone to docs in 3 years but i have my records to prove otherwise....have to file appeal to council and file complaint against her with ssa.


Judge: Michelle Wolfe
10/15/2014 10:46:32 AM



Because Michelle Wolfe IGNORES medical evidence I have been penniless for 4 years, and now have no medical coverage because my 66 year old husband lost his job and my health insurance. As an UNPAID disabled American I can not afford Obama Care, and slip through the cracks and do not qualify for medicaid. Does Michelle Wolfe go to work with a tumor in her leg? Does she have 2 plates in her neck and require more surgery? Does she have psoriatic arthritis and an allergy to anti-inflammatories? Does she live with chronic pain and wear a fentanyl patch? Does she have medical coverage, and can she get the medical attention she needs? A very calloused individual would ignore scientific proof and facts just to keep her denial numbers high. An unfair, unjust person. Another corrupt judge in Luzerne County. How does she sleep at night?

I really to have my hearing moved up right now I am not even scheduled because you are booked through November. My family is really struggling because my husband had to take a lower paying job. Which is keeping me more stressed which means more migraines & my depression even worse. All I am asking to please move my case up before November it would help take a lot of stress off of my husband, my self & even my kids.I would greatly appreciate it. If I was able to work I would I loved working. But I can't, & right now we can't make it on my husband' s income & he is looking for a second job. So we r trying.


Judge: Jerry Meade
9/7/2014 9:23:14 PM



I have to say when I read previous comments about Judge Meade it increased my anxiety before my hearing. I am a nurse of 30 years and was forced out of my profession due to my health issues. I had always been taught to make your own way in life and that no one owed you anything. This made it very hard for me to give in to my health issues and apply for disability. However, it got to the point where I no longer had a choice. Judge Meade made my experience with this humiliating process as easy as he could. He treated me with dignity and respect. I will forever be grateful to him and pray that God gives him the insight he needs to make these life altering decisions for others in the future.

SSA Victim
Judge: Thaddeus J Hess
8/8/2014 12:39:55 AM



Does not review medical records or diagnostic tests. On 3 instances in Mr. Hess's denial, he stated for each impairment, there were no medical records, findings or lab results backing claimants impairment thus the claimant is not credible. Yet, within the records, even the ones Mr. Hess had ( copies submitted to me by SSA ), there were a multitude of medical records, imaging, labs and Doctors statements..How crooked is the system? My attorney informed me the judge made an error of findings and we appealed to the review council . The review council wouldnt even review the "proof of error", these crooks, blatantly sent it back siding with the judge?? My attorney stated they were wrong but also stated that It's the government, if they tell you the sky is brown, you best believe it is brown. He said cases before Judges are a toss of a coin. How true it seems!


Judge: Michelle Wolfe
6/23/2014 6:43:21 PM



keep up the good work judge there are way to many people sucking on system To the person who took the time to post the above statement. Without knowing any facts or the people suffering because of ignorant underhanded wrong decisions some of these ALJ's make. For you to make a blanket statement like that shows what a vile disgusting person you must be. Karma really is a powerful thing.


Judge: Rebecca B Sartor
4/15/2014 2:02:17 PM



Do not like judge sartor. She just looks at the social security dr findings too much. She had me nervous and upset for the get go. I believe she already had her mind made up when I went to the hearing. A lot of things can come up from the time u see their dr and the hearing. In my denial letter is looks like I am completely lying abt all of my problems. I am not making up migraines bc it is no fun getting botex shots all over my head.

She just denied my case. Her decision will have me homeless within a few months. I am on my own, I have no wife or any kind of safety net to help pay the bills while I fight to get what essentially is my own money back so I can survive. I am a 52 yr old man that has been working since high school. I can't afford medical nor do I qualify for Medicaid because I have more than 250.00 in my bank account..Not much more... I dont have the money to seek proper medical attention and that is something being used against me in my case.. In her decision she stated my doctor says my condition doesn't require any medication. I guess the fact he prescribed a new medicine recently along with the meds he has been prescribing for the past 4 yrs doesn't count ...Judge Wolfe should be ashamed of herself. One consolation is that Karma is a powerful thing.

Judge: James J Kent
12/16/2013 5:20:24 PM



I received my decision. I feel after reading it that he gave greater weight to the Social Security evaluation doctor than to my own doctor who sees me regularly. I have researched online and this alone seems to be the number 1 factor in getting the council to remand this back to the ALJ for another decision. Judge Kent does contradict himself a few times in my report. He also states that I stated something which I know I did not and never would have. I even had documentation on me that day which he never requested to view which would have also shown that I did not state what he says I stated to him. he also has provided me with a sex change several times in his decision, by referring to me as "her" on numerous occasions in my report. I have never been a her, never wanted to try to become a her either. I am not sure why he feels I need to become one or that I am one. He did not take into consideration that my condition is one in which it becomes worse over time hence degenerative.


Judge: James J Kent
12/4/2013 5:19:30 PM



Not sure what to think of this guy. prior to my hearing I was informed by my attorney that this judge has a very high approval rate. during my hearing I felt intimidated. After my hearing my attorney tells me she can not see how I could not have won just wait for the decision to come in the mail. Still waiting. I do not have the same level of confidence. Because I am not sure how to feel about this hearing as of yet since I do not have the decision, I am going to rate right down the middle and give him the benefit of the doubt.

6/18/2013 9:40:17 AM



I'm an attorney who only practices Social Security disability law, and who routinely appears before judges from seven different ODARs (Portland, Eugene, Tacoma, Seattle, Spokane, Boise and Las Vegas - a total of 67 ALJs), and on occasion at virtually every ODAR across the country. I have seen it all, from wack-job judges who are truly insane -- pity anyone from Moreno Valley, CA or Billings, MT -- to judges on some sort of an agenda to deny (or approve!) as many people as possible. I can say without hesitation that Chief Judge Rolph is one of the most courteous, professional, thoughtful and genuinely compassionate judges that I have encountered. This is NOT the same thing as a high allowance rate. He only pays about 50/50, which means that he is denying a lot of cases who probably should be approved. However, I truly believe you get a fair shot with him. While he may not approve every claim, my experience is that he treats every claimant with respect as a human being. As bad as it is to have your claim denied, it is incredible how many judges insist on belittling people and treating them like crap. Judge Rolph never does this. The only time I have ever seen him lose patience, and even then it was slight, was when a claimant insisted on lying to him (and me) about current drug and alcohol use, was deceitful and very dishonest. Anyone who does that deserves a lot worse. Bottom line: I would love to win every one of my cases, but I would be more than happy if every one of my clients were assigned to Judge Rolph.

I recently went before Judge Meade, Well actually it was video conference, And I recieved an unfavorable decision. The reason why is because he said I exaggerated about my disability which is Aspergers Syndrome a form of Autism. I didn't lie about anything I was under oath, Even if I hadn't of been under oath I wouldn't of lied. He also said that my therapist who helped me wasn't credible and that's not true. He also said I was obese and needed to lose weight, And i'm not. I've been to several law judges and I've never had any of them say such mean hurtful things to me and about me. I feel sorry for anyone who has to go in front of him.

Irksome problem with her is that she schedules hearings close together, and then falls way behind over the course of the day. It's not unusual to have your hearing heard 2 hours late. If her decisions were good, it would be tolerable, but she denies many cases that should be awarded.

This judge is a joke. You have many medical experts oppinions backing your claim, "but" because he doesnt like the answers, he gives them no merit or weight! He is a judge, not a doctor, but he feels the need to, in so many words, say, "your doctor doesnt know what he/she is talking about". He doesnt review all medical records. ONE, example of MANY inconsistencies from Him ( he wants to point out inconsistencies of the claimant, lets point fingers at him! Had A CT scan showing, cirrhosis, enlarged spleen, Gal stones. His words "claimant states he has enlarged spleen but no medical record proving such" ( realy? who is inconsistent now?) Diagnosed with Agorapbobia, social phobia, bi polar, fear of being around people. The judge seems to believe, if you have such phobia, surely this would be observed and a problem being around people in a venue setting such as an "emergency room" REALLY? So if someone has agoraphobia or social phobia, this would prevent them from doing something thats not an option. Medical Emergency, hospital, Emergency room ? this isnt dinner, its a MUST.

In my case DLJ Jerry Meade erred no less than 23 times. He also commited two cases of reversable error in my case. When my legal counsel filed a notice of appeal and a lengthy legal brief, I began to notice that there were spy cars watching me. They would follow me to appointments with treating professionals. On one occasion they were going through my garbage and became agitated when confronted. They flashed an unusual badge. The US Marshall's office confirmed that they were FBI. I suppose that when the collage of mistakes made by ALJ Jerry Meade hit his superiors in Falls Church, VA he became upset. I have asked for the appeal to be dismissed. I hope that this will end the lengthy harrasment from the henchmen of ALJ JErry Meade.

they all just think everone who applies for ssi/ssd is trying to get something for nothing. in some cases yea that may be true but theres alot of people who really cant work and deserve help. whats funny is seems like the people who really dont deserve always gets approved with no problem

in my opendion this man is to young to be making decision that effect one person life that has live at least 15 years longer than he. he looks to be the type of judge that has a mind set before the hearing. in my case his major reason for turning me down was i had never worked and paid in taxes, which i have not paid in taxes because i worked in a family business from the age of 18 till 45 and then we went out of business. i did work but it was not consider work because i didn't pay in self employed taxes, because i never believe our business would close, i am now 51 and have to depend on other family members for support. he also stated that i could sometimes crawl, snoop and other things that were uncalled for. i hope he never has to live with the illnesses i live with and suffer like i. i'm glad he can live with making desisions that totally affect other peoples lives and that he prays every night for guidness and forgivness for hurting more than he helps. god bless him. one more thing i always though, ssi as for people that had not paid in enough taxes to get social security.

This man may be a good man.. I can't say nothing bad about him cause he gave me and unfavorable decision.. but I do want to ask a question... how can one man look at so called paperwork and see a client for a few minutes and then make a decision that will affect the rest of their lives... I will pray for these people cause I see that they do have a hard job in front of them but it just awes me to see how the system is so messed up when some you know get approved and some have been fighting for years. so I guess I will wait and see what goes.. as for me GOD will provide and I pray he has his hand upon these men that makes decisions.. cause one day they will have to stand before someone mightier than then...

He is a hatchet man who denies as many cases as possible on minor technicalities.
