START A PETITION

Feb 26, 2008

Hi, I've never used this format before but the issue I am attempting to bring to your attention is one of extreme importance to people applying for Disability through the Social Security Admn.
Each day there are literally thousands of people who put in their initial application for benefits.  The majority of these individuals have serious illness or injury and therefor legitimate reasons for applying.
Out of those thousands, a fair figure for those turned down would be in the 90% range.  This means they must either appeal that decision (the wiser choice) or start all over again with another application.
Some individuals have been at this appeals process for anywhere from 2-5 yrs !!  In the process they are losing everything they worked for over the years, living with or off family, if they are fortunate enough to have one that will indeed help them and scrambling for the medical care that they need.  Many die while waiting and a good majority get worse due to lack of sufficient medical care.
There is a petition currently in circulation asking the SSD Admin to change the way the application process is being handled so that help comes faster to these deserving individuals.
Please, take a moment and consider adding your name to the list of those who have already signed in support of this very important issue.

Follow the below link to the petition:
