Social Security Disability Breakdown and Exploration of the Harm of Outdated Policy

Coffee and Policy Chats

18-01-2023 • 1時間

This week we break down the OASDI social security program and the outdated policy governing the review and adjudication of OASDI claims. Part of determining if someone is eligible for disability benefits is the "Other Work Test". No big deal under normal circumstances, except that people are being denied based on the examiners using data that is at minimum 30 years out of date. Tune in while we talk about the issue and I make some recommendations on what policy changes could be made to better serve Americans. Feel free to comment if you have any suggestions and want to join the conversation.
