Report: disability judges erroneously approve appeal cases

A recent report revealed that many Social Security judges easily approve disability appeals, costing the program billions of dollars, The Washington Times reported on December 18.

In the report released by House oversight committee chairman Rep. Darrel Issa (Calif.-R) both the SSDI and SSI programs are nearing exhaustion, unhelped by administration judges who easily approve claims. Rep. Issa reportedly is concerned that judges easily approve denied claims to compensate backlogs as fast as they can, and the agency is too lax to admonish them. People who deserve to get benefits are at risk due to the rapidly approaching disability fund expiration in 2016.
