Over at a Social Security blog it was indicated that the feds are seeking new rules in the handling of Social Security claims. Will it improve the system? Would you call it an improvement if it saves money? Seems like this may mean less benefits being paid out and more denials of cases according to this writer. Hope he is wrong but he does provide a link to the new proposal and it does show a savings. I just hope it is not at the expense of the disabled. The writer is saying thousands more may be denied benefits. I certainly think the current system needs improving and increased efficiency as delays are terrible. I know that the Social Security system is underfunded and needs more Judges and dollars in their budget so perhaps the savings is more administrative but if not then it is ominous for claimants.
