Averages for the West Des Moines Office of Disability Adjudication and Review

The average processing time for the West Des Moines Office of Disability Adjudication and Review is 420 days.  The processing time starts when the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review receives the claim and ends when final decision is mailed.  It takes approximately 12 months from the time the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review receives a request for hearing for the hearing to be scheduled.   Most cases have already been pending with the Social Security Administration for 9 to 12 months before reaching the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review.  This brings the total wait time to approximately 21 to 24 months.  The averages vary from state to state and fluctuates  from year to year at each office.  These statistics are just an average they do not represent every case.
