Citizens attempting to login to their accounts on the U.S. Social Security Administration website will now be required to offer further proof of their identity, but the enhanced security implementation is receiving mixed reviews. Back in March, Homeland Security purchased 450 million rounds of40-caliber hollow point bullets that are designed to expand upon entry and cause maximum organ damage, prompting questions as to why the DHS needed such a large amount of powerful bullets merely for training purposes.
I would like to see the SSA make it mandatory to receive a one-time code via the U.S. Mail to finalize the creation of all new accounts, whether or not users opt for extra security.” Perhaps the agency will require this in the future, but it’s mystifying to me why it doesn’t already do this by default.
From reading some of the comments I have received about the allegations that the California and Hawaii Disability Determination Services (DDS) have been looking for ways to get rid of disability claims they are supposed to review, I wonder if some of my readers understand the gravity of what is alleged.
At a hearing before the House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Social Security yesterday, Congressman Filner (D-CA) testified that the California DDS is denying the claims of disability applicants who fail to return a 25-page report within 20 days – a practice which has been adopted since the institution of furloughs.
SSA did propose this in 2007 and 2008 The proposal was to incorporate a flat benefit reduction equal to the lesser of the worker’s monthly WC/PDB benefit or 31 percent of the Social Security disability benefit (DIB) when the worker receives both DIB and a WC/PDB benefit.adjustment, information, living
