Are Long Delays Keeping Social Security Disability Solvent?

Posted by John Kuhnlein | Aug 02, 2017 | 0 Comments

Sometimes you read a story that reminds you of just how differently government workers see the world than the rest of us. There are things that can only make sense when viewed through the prism of a government bureaucracy.  Here is one of those.

Is This Catch 22 Or Something Worse?

This Makes Sense, Right?

A new report suggests that the Social Security disability trust fund is doing better because . . . the wait to get Social Security disability claims approved is so long. Yes, you read that correctly. Social Security has derived a method to get back to solvency by failing to provide services in a timely manner. With this sort of motivation, the sky is the limit for what Social Security can do.  I wonder if they have considered using this for retirement payments as well? If it works for disability, why not?  

Why Not Stop All Benefit Payments?

If Social Security just stopped paying any benefits, think of how much money they would save and how efficiently the agency would operate.  It's a wonder no one thought of this sooner.

Don't Try This At Home

You Tell That Bank I Have A New Way Of Doing Things

I can't recommend you try this in the real world.  I think the bank is going to want your mortgage payment no matter how much you explain to them how much money they are saving if you don't pay.

I cannot wait to see the next innovation from our fine government agencies. If you can top this one, let me know. 

About the Author

John Kuhnlein

Since 1992, I have been helping the people of Southern Arizona get the benefits they are due. Before devoting all my efforts to assisting people with Social Security disability claims, I also handled such complex lawsuits as medical malpractice and products liability. I brought to my Social Security cases all the skills and attention to detail that I developed in the courtroom. I approach each Social Security disability case as if it were a million-dollar lawsuit. For the people trying to get Social Security benefits, their claim is every bit as important. Because I have personally handled so many Social Security cases, I have refined the skills I need to win your case for you. I have helped people win cases for every kind of ailment from arthritis to valley fever. At present, I am focused on helping those persons with neurological and orthopedic disorders. Because claims for people over age fifty bring additional complications, I particularly seek out those cases to work on. I regularly write about back and spine conditions on my blog. I actively seek out the latest information about orthopedic and neurological disorders to ensure I can represent my clients as effectively as possible. Because of my current focus, I regret that I am not able to take any cases for mental disorders. If you are over age fifty and suffer from any orthopedic or neurological disorder, please contact me at once.
