Social Security Disability Benefits are the Subject of Violent Threats
The Social Security Administration’s Office of Disability Adjudication and Review reported that between March 2009 and August 2009 there were over twenty-eight violent threats reported at Social Security Disability offices and nine judges were threatened.
Social Security judges have difficult decisions to make and the delay in hearing claims has not been caused by an administrative law judge.
Unfortunately, part of delay has been the lack of staffing and judges to hear claims but the efforts in the St. Petersburg area has resulted in the opening of a new claims office in St. Petersburg.
Threatening an administrative law judge isn’t the way to get your benefits- it’s a trip to jail. If you would like help with your Social Security Disability claim, give us a call today.
