CBS News Special Report on Social Security Disability Claim Backlog

Tuesday, January 15, 2008

Last night the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric unveiled the first of two special reports on the Social Security Disability claim backlog.  My friend and fellow Social Security Disability lawyer, John Hogan, was interviewed and spoke of the 2 1/2 year wait for a hearing in the Atlanta area!  When you see the disabled claimant’s profiled in this report, you will realize how cruel and unacceptable such waits are.  I suppose that we should be thankful that the hearing wait in the New York metropolitan region is only 18 months!???  But it is hard to feel this way when you see clients […]

New York Times Reports on Social Security Disability Claim Crisis

Tuesday, December 11, 2007

Yesterday’s front cover of the NY Times had an article detailing the long delays in the Social Security Disability claim process.  Much of the backlog is the result of Congress failing to adequately fund a Social Security disability claim system which is now facing more claims due to the aging of the "baby boomer" generation.  Today, a rash of editorials skewering both President Bush and Congress for this preventable crisis hit the streets and the far reaches of the Internet.  Something must be done – now!  Last week, I traveled to New Haven, Connecticut to handle a Social Security disability […]

Wednesday, November 7, 2007

As an Air Force veteran myself, it was reassuring to know that so many talented veteran disability claim lawyers were in attendance at the National Organization of  Veterans’ Attorneys (NOVA) conference last week in Washington, DC.  My partner David Tobias and I attended, and as always, there was much to learn.   If there was one thing that stood out in my mind from this conference, it would be the realization of the staggering numbers of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) service connected disability claims that we will all be seeing come out of the current Iraq war.  Formerly called "Soldiers Heart" and "Shell Shock" in […]
