The Government Shutdown

It’s a tough time right now for a lot of folks. Many folks live paycheck to paycheck. And if you’re depending on a social security check, it’s frightening and frustrating all at the same time.

If you receive social security disability checks, or any measure of supplemental security income, or you’re in the process of filing a new claim, you’re in for a very frustrating time of it with the government being shutdown. 

Upstate NY and Syracuse one of the longest waits in the country

It was just on the news recently that the social security disability situation in Upstate NY and Syracuse, NY in particular, was one of the top ten longest waits in the country to process your social security disability claim. And that’s even before you get your benefits check. That’s just to get a hearing!

Filing a social security disability claim during the government shutdown

You’ll have another four to six MONTHS before they’ll issue you your DENIAL for claims, which is pretty much standard. You get denied. That’s why so many cases have to go to court for social security disability. And what’s worse, this situation existed BEFORE the government shutdown. So imagine now?
