Description
 
The Social Security Admin. (SSA) administers two large federal disability programs: Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). The average lifetime disability benefit is estimated at $300.000, so any improper decisions that award benefits are incredibly costly for the program and for taxpayers. This report focuses on problems within the disability appeals process, when Administrative Law Judges (ALJs) review appealed cases and decide whether or not to award benefits. A case only reaches an ALJ after the claimant failed to meet the criteria for disability, and ALJ decisions to award benefits are very costly. The report shows that numerous errors were made in ALJ decision making; SSA allowed incompetent and negligent ALJs to continue deciding cases; SSA made arbitrary disposition targets the cornerstone of SSAńˇ╗s disability policy; and disability lawyers who cash in on SSAńˇ╗s current program structure create obstacles to reform. Includes recommendations. This is a print on demand report.
