Social Security Update Shows Disturbing Trend

Posted February 6, 2015 by Premier Disability Services, LLC® The Social Security Administration (SSA) recently released an update of their disabled worker beneficiary statistics by calendar year, quarter, and month.  The data provided by SSA revealed that the disturbing trend of decreasing Social Security Disability awards has continued through 2014.  In fact, over the last five years, the number of awarded claims based on a claimant’s initial application has declined significantly each year.  To be fair, the number of applications has also declined.  However, the fact that less and less disabled workers are awarded benefits each year is certainly unsettling.
