SSA should review application decisions of two Social Security judges

Representatives James Paul Lankford (Republican of Oklahoma) and Karen Lorraine Jacqueline Speier (Democrat of California), top-ranking members of the House of Representatives’ committee on health care, believe that the Social Security Administration should review the decisions made by Administrative Law Judges David Daugherty in West Virginia and Charles Bridges in Pennsylvania regarding Social Security benefit applications. According to them, the judges may have approved thousands of bogus or fraudulent disability claims, either intentionally or unintentionally.

The representatives also stated that judges and Social Security employees should be able to look at applicants’ social networking sites to gather information that might be relevant in the disability benefits application process. They believe that the photos and information posted on these sites can reveal the true physical condition of the applicants.
