According to World EI News, the sequester administered by President Obama
may retard the process of SSDI claims and may cause the disabled citizens
in America to wait even longer for an answer to their application. The
Budget Control Act mandates that there must be $85 million in federal
government spending cuts. This went into effect on March 1
st, 2013, and the government is now looking for places to conserve finances
as they work hard to stick to their new budget.
One way that the federal government may choose to conserve money is by
cutting the work hours for employees at the Social Security Administration.
Federal officials say that as a result, the SSA will need to make telephone
hold times longer and will need to extend the processing time on all disability
benefit decisions by one month. This means that if you were told that
the SSA would give you a decision on your application by April, you might
as well start hoping for May. The Baltimore Sun declares that federal
officials are going to make an 8% cut on spending for the SSA, which is
a big hit to their $11.5 billion budget.
Rumors are swirling that the SSA may close some of their offices in the
near future, and the Christian Science Monitor speculates that the White
House has already warned of growth in the backlog of Social Security Disability
Claims. If you want to expedite your
SSDI claim, or if you already received a rejection letter and want to appeal the
verdict, then you will want an
SSDI attorney there to help you. At the Zendeh Del Law Firm, PLLC, there are hardworking and
