The Wall Street Journal reports that Disability benefits from the workplace and the government are being reduced, which is putting more pressure on consumers to purchase their own Disability Insurance coverage.
Last year the percentage of companies that covered all or part of their employees Disability Insurance fell from 59% in 2002 to 48%.
At the same time the Social Security Administration is being inundated with Disability claims, causing a significant backlog. This backlog can create problems if you are waiting on a claim from the SSA.
The Social Security Disability lawyers at Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin can help if you were denied the SSD benefits you deserve.
