“Line in the Sand” Developing over Disability Trust Fund

Posted February 20, 2015 by Premier Disability Services, LLC® The future of the Social Security Disability program has become an increasingly “hot button” topic among congressional Democrats and Republicans alike. This issue could become one of the major running points in the 2016 presidential elections. The contentious positioning is primarily due to the fact that the Disability Insurance Trust Fund has been on a steady decline since 2009. A recent report from the Office of the Inspector General stated that unless Congress takes action the funds could be depleted by 2016. In previous years, Congress would solve this problem by shifting revenues from the larger retirement trust fund into the disability fund. However, the current delegation of House Republicans is attempting to put major restrictions on Congress’ ability to reallocate money between the two funds. Congressional Republicans believe that reallocating will only harm the retirement program while providing a “band aid” to the disability program. If the Disability Insurance Trust Fund becomes insolvent in 2016 it could lead to major cuts in Social Security Disability benefits. While reallocation may not be completely dead as an option, it seems clear that Congressional Republicans will try to require major changes in the program prior to any transfer of funds.
