There's quite a bit of discussion about Social Security's OIG report on "outlier ALJs" and the disability claims they might have wrongly approved. Despite the histrionics of some journalists and politicians, a few things stand out.  Also, there is no discussion at all of ALJs that approve claims at a much lower rate than the average. There is, for instance, an ALJ who issued over 700 decisions in FY2014 with a pay rate of about 20%. Concern over the state of the Disability trust fund is justified, but the best way to address the problem is to focus on improving the decision making process throughout the ALJ ranks. I've linked the report below. Compare that report with the ALJ disposition data available here http://www.ssa.gov/appeals/DataSets/03_ALJ_Disposition_Data.html
