Why is my SSI decision taking so long?
Because there are so many applications that are filed each year, it takes time for the SSA to process and review each one. This review time can take anywhere from 3 to 6 months on average. Most people have their initial application denied. It doesn’t mean that your case is over and that you should give up.
What happens after SSI makes a decision?

When the judge is ready to issue the decision, your disability file may be sent to the Social Security office from where it originated.

Do SSDI denials come faster than approvals?
