Congress discusses urgent need for SSDI reform

The House of the Representatives Ways and Means social security subcommittee conducted a congressional hearing during the last week of February on the measures to be taken to prevent the insolvency of the Social Security Disability Program.

Earlier that month, the Senate budget committee conducted a similar hearing. Said hearings are being held in relation to the impending dissolution of the SSDI funds come 2016. Without congressional action to realign other funds to augment the SSDI, or provide other sources of funding to allocate to the nearly depleted disability fund, disability recipients and their beneficiaries could see as much as a 19% cut in the funds they receive each month.
