Disability claims rise dramatically

Disability claims rise dramatically

December 17, 2009

Kudos to Mark Papa, a social security attorney who works for Harrell & Harrell in our Mandarin/Southside office, for feeding me with great blog information regarding the SSA and your Social Security benefits.

The article by Senior Editor Jason White at sums it up very nicely. Aging baby boomers and the struggling economy are driving up Social Security claims to staggering levels. According to Jason’s statistics he quotes from the SSA, new claims for disability benefits rose nearly 17 percent in fiscal year 2009 and disability filings are projected to rise another 10 percent in fiscal 2010. Add that to the already 12 million Americans who receive disability benefits at a total cost of $161 billion in fiscal 2009. Wow! Read the article because Jason sums it up better than I ever could and then call Mark Papa at (904)251-1111 to schedule your free consultation.
