Non-English speaking applicants are allegedly fast-tracked through the
SSDI application process because of their inability to explain answers
because they have no command of the English language. Recently, a Ranking
Member of the Senate Budget Committee wrote a letter to the Acting Commissioner
of the Social Security Administration raising concerns on this issue.
The writer claimed that individuals who cannot speak English are often
fast-tracked for disability approval and do not have to outlast the long
wait that many Americans experience. The Social Security Act allows for
the consideration of education when deciding if an individual is disabled.
This also concerns whether or not an applicant has a command of English.
Some say that individuals that this should not be a factor in the education
of disability applicants.
If you have a limited ability to speak the English language, this may help
you in fast-tracking your application. Don't hesitate to
