My thanks to Charles T. Hall of Raleigh, North Carolina, for his post on his Social Security News blog: “The New York Times has an article (registration required) that demonstrates the human costs of delaying filing a claim for Social Security disability benefits — and the human costs of delay in adjudicating disability claims at SSA. This formerly middle class family was thrust into dire poverty primarily by disability and their delay in seeking disability benefits from SSA.” A safety net that is not deployed for years after a total disability occurs is absurd. America can do better for its disabled.
