Wednesday was the 56th anniversary of the Social Security Act Disability Amendment. With that act, the United States government made a commitment to provide every working American with monetary assistance if a disabling accident or health issue rendered then unable to work.
Because of recent negative media coverage and political attacks, the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program is being attacked and targeted for budget cuts, according to Market Watch.
To fight back against misleading allegations that are being made about the program, the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives (NOSSCR) is launching a campaign this week.
As part of this campaign, a redesigned website, www.nosscr.org, will be up and running on August 1. Serving as the ultimate SSDI information site, the enhanced website will bring both advocacy and educational information about SSDI issues.
Continuing to keep the voice of the disabled community front and center in this debate over SSDI benefits, the NOSSCR website will publish member opinion pieces and push back on fallacious media reports.
“No one expects to become disabled,” said NOSSCR’s current vice president. “SSDI benefits are essential for many who, without them, would end up on the street. We must continue to honor the commitment to the hard-working Americans who have earned these disability benefits.”
