Some news you may not be aware of concerning Social Security disability benefits is a bill that is currently in Congress. The bill, entitled “HR 33: Disability Benefit Fairness Act of 2009”, was formed to amend the part of the Social Security Act that allows a 5 month waiting period before benefits begin for a claimant.
We have witnessed the hardship that clients have to endure during the waiting period here at Hardison & Cochran. Clients that aren’t able to work cannot earn income and face some troubling times in that period of time where no benefits are available.
