597 days. And still waiting.

The recent installation of the Washington Post series “Disabled America” focuses on the rapidly rising number of Claimants who die while waiting for a disability hearing.  While extremely tragic, the country needs to be aware and understand the extent to which the SSA disability program is broken and the hardships imposed on people from all walks of life.  Worth a read.

10,000 people died waiting for a disability decision in the past year. Will he be next?
