I sure am glad President Trump isn’t considering me to be the new head of the Social Security Administration. Americans do NOT believe Social Security is a major cause of the deficit – it is only cited by 2% of Americans as the primary cause of the deficit. They make determinations at the initial and reconsideration levels on Social Security disability claims. Real people’s lives are affected in horrific ways when Social Security disability claims are denied.
Look at the number of ALJ’s who were illegally forced out of their jobs, and the unprecedented number of very young ALJ candidates hired in their stead. The agency also adjudicates a limited number of Medicare claim issues, which is a residual legacy from when SSA was part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Today, social security covers more than just retirement benefits for individual workers.
In October, we will begin a pilot program to encrypt the claim folder CDs sent to you by the Social Security Administrations’ Office of Disability Adjudication and Review. The office estimated $37.7 million in Social Security payments had already been sent to 746 people after they died. Some of the members of this Advisory Council have actually met Social Security disability claimants.
The SSA has seen numerous name changes and operational revisions in its lifetime as different administrations shaped the agency into their desired forms. USA TODAY/Gallup Poll finds that a majority of retirees say they expect their current benefits to be cut, a dramatic increase in the number holding that view.
So watch out social security you’re going to regret messing with us. We will unveil the wrong doings you’ve done and there’s no way to stop us. This is what happens when you allow idiots to run your government. A separate notice to the vocational expert gives that person’s name and address.
