Less Money, Less Judges, More SS Backlogs
As noted at this link the backlog in SS disability hearings is not hard to figure out. With less funds appropriated then requested the result is more delays. The Social Security Administration has more duties but less Judges and less funds then needed. We all want a fast and fair process to determine SS disability but it requires more funds. When appropriations are inadequate then people suffer delays. More Judges and more dollars are needed to make the system function correctly along with other changes to assist in disability determinations. Until it happens the disabled will be forced to wait.
