If you follow the blog, you are well aware of the news concerning backlogs and the awarding of Social Security disability benefits. It’s simply a problem, which in this economic climate, has grown to heights that have never been seen. There are many opinions out there to why these backlogs exist, but no matter what the simple fact remains that they do exist and people are not getting their benefits.
With all this being said, the Social Security benefits system isn’t the only one seeing a backlog due to the current conditions. As this USA Today article by Marisol Bello shows, Unemployment and Food Stamp programs are also feeling the hit. For someone who can’t work and seeking disability benefits, who would need food stamps to get by, this could be a very difficult time.
