Obama Administration’s Plans For Social Security Disability Claims Process | Tampa Bay Social Security Disability Lawyer

Change is coming to the Social Security Disability Claims Process under President Obama. Has your claim for Social Security Disability Benefits been wrongfully denied? Have you waited forever for a hearing?

You should check out Barack Obama website! There is a plan to ” Empower Americans with Disabilities,” which describes Obama’s plan to resolve the nation’s Social Security Disability issues.

The plan is divided into four parts which focus on how to provide disabled Americans opportunities for the best quality of life:

1. Provide Americans with disabilities the educational opportunities to succeed
2. End discrimination and promote equal opportunity for the disabled.
3. Increase the employment rate of workers with disabilities
4. Support the independent, community-based living for Americans with disabilities

Obama supports a $150 million increase in the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) budget.

The Obama administration is committed to streamlining the application and appeal process and acknowledge that process has been grossly under funded.

– The SSA claims backlog has reached a record high of 755,000, an increase of over 440,000 since 2000.
– The average weight time for an appeals hearing is 505 days, compared to 258 days in 2000.
