Judges claim they are expected to review too many disability claims

It has been estimated that at least 70 percent of Social Security Disability Insurance and Supplemental Security Income claims are denied by the Social Security Administration. Claims may be denied when disabled workers and other folks in Minnesota and throughout the U.S. fail to provide the SSA with the information that is needed to process a claim. Claims may also be denied when the SSA makes mistakes while processing claims or when the SSA makes the determination that some applicants are simply not entitled to obtain disability benefits.

How would the proposed budget affect people on Social Security?

It is that time of the year when the president and Congress are talking about the budget. It is a necessary thing, and anyone in Minneapolis who is dependent on Social Security disability insurance benefits or Supplemental Security Income likely watches the debates with anticipation. This is, in part, because the benefits that help cover their living costs are potentially at risk, as there is always such a sharp divide on how money should be spent on individuals with disabilities. This year is no different, but President Obama's proposed budget may have a surprising and detrimental effect on those who rely on Supplemental Security Income.

Disability benefits for children in Minnesota: SSD or SSI benefits?

Employment rate of disabled workers is only 18 percent in U.S.

Last month on our Minneapolis Social Security disability law blog, we had mentioned that the government recently decided to ease some of its requirements during the hiring process for disabled individuals who are looking to join or return to the workforce. The government has decided to do this in order to make it easier for folks with disabilities to apply for jobs and to also speed up the hiring process for disabled workers.
