SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY DELAYS REPORTED IN WASHINGTON POST

On October 18th, The Washington Post reported that appeals for Social Security Disability benefits, for those people who are totally disabled, are almost one million cases behind!

The article discusses one injured worker who suffers from back pain and a torn shoulder tendon, who cannot work because of her disability, and who is totally disabled. It also discusses a factory worker who is totally disabled because of back and neck pain. He was forced to wait seven years for social security disability benefits!

The Post reports that the number of men and women waiting for social security disability appeals to be decided is larger than the populations of six different states! And even though there are 1,445 Social Security Judges--a legal system that is larger than the entire regular federal court system--disabled men and women STILL are waiting, in the hundreds of thousands. This is unacceptable! 

Whether you are a new applicant for social security disability benefits, or whether you are appealing your social security disability decision, it's best to be represented by a lawyer who has many years experience fighting for social security disability benefits for sick and disabled men and women.
