Tiny Bit of Good News For Social Security Disability Recipients

The federal government’s new Medicare drug plan has been a chaotic disaster so far, and many senior citizens are suffering from an inability to receive their prescriptions.

But, as reported in the Los Angeles Times, there is a tiny bit of silver lining in all this mess. As the article says:

To free up staff, the agency has received White House permission to cut back on disability reviews, McMahon wrote. The reviews, which determine whether certain beneficiaries still qualify to receive monthly assistance, save the government money.

So current recipients will have less risk of being put through the review process, but so many Social Security Administration employees have been taken off their regular duties so they can answer the many phone calls about the new prescription plan, that people who have applications for benefits pending, will be forced to wait even longer than normal.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
