Potentially big changes announced for Social Security disability

According to the Wall Street Journal, the Social Security Administration is in the process of making what could ultimately be major changes to the Social Security disability system. The changes center around three issues: how the agency determines an applicant’s ability to perform substantial meaningful work; the caseload and responsibility of SSA administrative law judges; and the responsibilities of lawyers and doctors who work on SSD cases.

You've been approved for Social Security disability. Now what?

Many people seeking Social Security Disability Insurance benefits have no idea what to expect from the process. Part of the job of a Social Security disability attorney is to guide people with qualifying disabilities through an application process that often feels like a maze of regulations, requirements and appeals. Even after they’ve been approved for benefits, however, many people are still confused about what happens next.

Research: SSD claims growth slowing and is due to demographics

“Too many misleading, sensationalized reports are aiming to paint Social Security Disability Insurance in a negative light, when in reality, the facts tell a truly positive story,” said the executive director of the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives, or NOSSCR.

Are poor employee benefits partly to blame for rising SSDI rates?

As we’ve discussed on this blog before, the number of people qualifying for Social Security Disability Insurance has been rising lately, and the timing of that increase has roughly tracked the unemployment crisis caused by the Great Recession. That association has caused a lot of controversy.
