Comments submitted by Bet Tzedek students Tyler Dixon '21 and Tiffany Cheung '21 to the Social Security Administration arguing against proposed revisions to the agencies continuing disability review procedures.

We have two main concerns with the proposed regulation. First, against the backdrop of an already overburdened agency with massive hearing backlogs and long wait times for benefits, the proposed changes will divert scarce resources toward more and more frequent continuing disability reviews (CDRs). Second, older adults nearing retirement age will face increased challenges due to more frequent, unnecessary reviews when it is highly unlikely that that they can return to work.
