The Social Safety Net Committee of the PSC demands that the Administration withdraw in their entirety its proposals to increase and intensify eligibility reviews for disabled Americans receiving Social Security Disability benefits. These changes would strip disability benefits from hundreds of thousands of Americans, as they did when President Reagan undertook similar efforts in 1981.
Applying for Social Security disability benefits is already difficult. The proposed new rule changes would also discourage new and renewal applications and spread fear among all disabled persons and their families helped by these programs.
PSC members and others can oppose these changes by sending in your comments to the Social Security Administration by January 31, 2020. One easy way: Go to the website of the Alliance of Retired Americans (click here). Another: Go to the Federal Register (click here), which describes the proposed changes in detail, and it will direct you how to send in your comments via the internet
We have only a short time. Please send in your protest against these attacks on the disabled.
