How Will The Sequester Affect Social Security Disability?

Sequestration's mandatory budget cuts took effect on March 1st.  While the press has reported that Social Security would not be affected, this is not completely true.   Thankfully, Social Security benefit payments are not affected by the mandatory budget cuts and will continue.  However, the daily operations of the Social Security Administration (SSA) will be disrupted if Congress does not act soon and the sequestration continues for a significant length of time.  


According to the White House fact sheet, SSA could be forced to reduce service to the public resulting in a reduction of service hours to the public, the closure of some offices, and a substantial growth in the backlog of Social Security disability claims. SSA has reported that pending levels of initial disability claims would have to wait about two weeks longer for an initial determination and nearly a month longer for a hearing decision.


In this time of uncertainty at SSA, it's even more important to be represented by a trial attorney experienced in Social Security law.  And remember, there is never a fee unless we win your case. Isn't it time to protect your rights and to put Social Security to work for you?
