    Here's the latest article you should read about the GAO now speaking about Social Security Disability entitled: "Social Security Needs to Rethink Disability and Work"

    Working there for 30 yrs, I saw many changes. My goodness, you used to get paid if you were a drunk or drug addict. I saw many get drunk in the parking lot to show they were still disabled! A new magazine article in the 90's ended that. Now D and A cannot be material in determining disability. I have seen judges, however, say that because a man had his legs cut off in an accident which he was drunk was not entitled due to this. What a joke....
