An open letter to the U.S. Senate

Social Security Disability – Casey/Brown/Wyden sign on letter

535 so far! Let’s get to 1,000 signers!

I urge you to immediately join the sign on letter from Senators Casey, Brown, and Wyden asking the Social Security Administration to abandon its new rule for continuing disability reviews. The NPRM from the Social Security Administration would cut $2.6 billion dollars over the next decade from the two core programs it runs that comprise the disability safety net: Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). The cuts would be accomplished by massively increasing the frequency of continuing disability reviews (CDRs). As the agency puts it, CDRs are used to “determine if disabled beneficiaries still meet the medical requirements for eligibility.” In other words, a CDR is a kind of 'are you still disabled enough for SSI or SSDI' audit. Social Security is proposing to focus the targeting of those CDRs on disabled children, people with certain medical conditions such as leukemia, and disabled older adults. If enacted, the NPRM will be disastrous for the millions of Americans who rely on SSI and SSDI.
