There are so many stories in the news that focus and highlight the people who abuse the Social Security Disability system. While I am confident that such abusers exist, the news should also show the other side of the story. So many individuals face so many difficulties while waiting for their Social Security Disability benefits (SSDI or SSI) to be awarded and paid to them. They face foreclosure, bankruptcy, mounting medical bills. These individuals are forced to take loans from family and friends, sell all their property, move into their cars just to feed themselves or their family. This is the side of the story that we see in our offices so often but so rarely on the news.
