Social Security Administration

The Social Security Administration (SSA) is an independent agency of the United States federal government that administers Social Security, a social insurance program consisting of retirement, disability, and survivors' benefits. To qualify for these benefits, most American workers pay Social Security taxes on their earnings; future benefits are based on the employees' contributions. (Source: Wikipedia)

Perhaps you are working for the SSA or interested in working for the SSA. Here is a forum to share your experience with the SSA.

Just received a referral.

Can anybody share their experience from how long of a wait to get an interview to an offer?

Also, anybody who has received a referral can post updates with regards to their progress towards an offer.

As long as the office has funding, you should be called within a week for an interview.

You need to start by 9/29. End of budget year.

Crossing fingers and hoping (not likely) that an interview will be expedited within a week.

Do you have experience undergoing the wait to be a Legal Assistant (Senior Case Technician) or any related position in SSA?

I work for the agency. They will likely interview 3 applicants for every vacancy. So if they are hiring 3, they will interview 9-10.

They have to make decisions fast this time of year and you wont have much wiggle room to negotiate a start date. Budget year ends Sept 30th and you need to start before then.

Good luck to you.
