I never really gave this much thought before, but we keep hearing that Social Security is struggling, and may not be there for the next generation after the baby-boomers. I sit and wonder about it...When they get their forms to begin to work on a disability claim, it seems like they should be able to get with it so they don't have to take years to approve or disapprove, and they wouldn't be paying a person who has been waiting for couple years hugh sums of money. Yeah, I mean it would be nice to get a retro check for $30,000.00 and then monthly , but why can't they just follow thru one case at a time. I live in Illinois and my appeal went to West Virginia, it is no wonder that the system is so screwed up. Oh well...just thought I would share my amazement with you all.
