We published final rules in the Federal Register on July 1, 2016, that revised the Listing of Impairments (Listings) for the neurological body system. In additional to retirement income, Social Security provides two other important benefits for the worker: income if you become disabled, and medical coverage. In 1953, the Federal Security Agency was abolished and SSA was placed under the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, which became the Department of Health and Human Services in 1980. Social Security will make every reasonable effort to help you get the necessary medical evidence.

It is past time that we remind Trump and his Republican colleagues that they work for us. They should stop limiting SSA from spending the money we have all already paid to ensure that our Social Security benefits are carefully and accurately administered, and that all of us can receive, timely and conveniently, the important services SSA provides. It obtained a temporary budget from the Federal Emergency Relief Administration headed by Harry Hopkins. Testimony, which is consistent with the medical evidence and credible, can persuade a Social Security judge to award benefits in a claim based upon Fibromyalgia or CFS.

This notice sets out the names and current addresses of those offices and the jurisdictions for which each office has responsibility. As you might have rightly expected, Social Security is primarily designed to provide a financial foundation for lower-income seniors during retirement. This program originally went under two separate names, Old Age Assistance (originally Title I of the Social Security Act of 1935), and Disability Assistance (added in 1946).

I post from time to time about how unfair it is that there is no statute of limitations on the collection of Social Security overpayments by setoff. You must submit documentation to prove the allegation of absence from the U.S. as the reason a Social Security Number was never assigned. Without getting into an international economics discussion of whether the presence of jobs in Mexico, Malaysia, China, or Nigeria, everyone can agree that the numbers of unskilled labor jobs in the United States has dwindled.
