2023 Waterfall Charts

February 29, 2024

SSA has released the Waterfall Charts for Fiscal Year 2023 for all Disability Determinations and for Continuing Disability Redeterminations (CDRs). Across the board, the numbers have held fairly steady from last year, with the biggest increase occurring in the number of cases dismissed at the ALJ level (up 13% for disability determinations and 23% for CDRs). ALJ allowances are also down, decreasing 6% in both categories.
