Some Social Security Disability Cases May Be Delayed Due to Government Shutdown

As the federal government has "shut down" due to a lack of a funding agreement in Congress, Social security disability applicants and recipients are concerned about what will happen with their cases and social security benefits.

Social Security Administration Tightens Rules for Disability

Getting social security disability might have gotten more difficult thanks to recent rule changes by the Social Security Administration. These rule changes will only apply to persons applying for disability after March 27, 2017. Thus, if a person has applied for social security disability before that date, even if they do not have a hearing yet, these rule changes will not apply to their case.
