Are Cost-Cutting Measures Hurting Social Security?

As politicians debate the future of the Social Security Administration (SSA) in broad terms, many thousands of disabled Americans continue to depend on their monthly disability benefits checks to make ends meet. In an effort to cut costs, the SSA has been moving toward eliminating paper statements to the majority of taxpayers, as we recently mentioned. Measures have not stopped there. The SSA recently announced plans to close a number of regional Social Security offices and to cut back on hours at the remaining locations.

Like many government agencies, the SSA has become the topic of debate this election season, and these measures are likely an effort to bring down spending any way possible. This is not a long-term solution, and it will not curb unnecessary spending or prevent fraud. Unfortunately, these cost-cutting measures may simply make it more difficult for severely disabled individuals to get the help they need.

These new developments only underscore how important it is to work with a Tulsa Social Security Disability lawyer. Your best chance at securing the benefits you desperately need and doing so efficiently is working with an experienced attorney who can help you organize and submit your information correctly and quickly.

    I didn't think there was a caring professional considerate attorney firm on the planet, but Troutman & Troutman proved me wrong. From the receptionist to the legal assistance to the attorney and more they were exceptional people.

    They did a fantastic job getting everything gathered up and getting the trial done as quickly as possible. Anytime I had a question they were patient and help me understand what was going on. Especially Christy and Charlie were great.

    Steve Troutman was able to get my short-term and long-term disability for me. Then Erin another lawyer for their firm got my Social security disability for me. Great people.

    Mr. Troutman walked me through the entire process. Heather was available each time I called, answered all my crazy questions, and helped me fill out forms along the way. I was never treated like I was wasting time.
