This important legislation ensures the modernization of the Social Security Administration (SSA) and the future solvency of the program.
NOSSCR is especially pleased that the bill addresses NOSSCR’s top legislative priorities, increasing the fee cap for claimants’ representatives and ending the five-month wait before claimants are able to receive their Social Security Disability benefit. The inclusion of these provisions results in a fairer and more efficient Social Security Disability program.
We have worked closely with Chairman John Larson (D-CT) and his staff on these important provisions in the past and commends him for their inclusion in this bill.
We look forward to working with Chairman Larson and the many co-sponsors of this legislation to secure a timely passage of this bill.
