I’m not motivated by having Social Security remain progressive,” but I fully agree that it’s bad policy to have government programs that are especially harmful for poor people.
I am still wading through Social Security’s Notice of Proposed Rule-Making (NPRM) on the representation of claimants. Key to the disability benefit will be an objective assessment of individual need, which we are developing in collaboration with a group of independent specialists in health, social care and disability, including disabled people.

In August 2016, Social Security introduced two factor authentication for claimants using its online systems. My visit to change my married name was way less painful than I expected it to be. I arrived about 5 minutes before they opened at 9am on Friday.
Please write the Social Security number on a separate sheet of paper and include it in the mailing envelope along with the documents. Republican control of the House of Representatives will allow Republicans to once again block adequate appropriations for Social Security.
This Social Security disability application and appeals process was designed so that Claimants are not required to obtain representation. Although Social Security disability fraud does happen occasionally, the majority of overpayment is not the result of intentional deception on the part of the claimant.
