Hopefully things will start looking up for people filing for Social Security Disability and/or Supplemental Security Income. Today, Presiden Biden fired Social Security Commissioner Andrew Saul because: “Since taking office, Commissioner Saul has undermined and politicized Social Security disability benefits, terminated the agency’s telework policy that was utilized by up to 25 percent of the agency’s workforce, not repaired SSA’s relationships with relevant Federal employee unions including in the context of COVID-19 workplace safety planning, reduced due process protections for benefits appeals hearings, and taken other actions that run contrary to the mission of the agency and the President’s policy agenda,” the White House official said.”
After Saul’s firing, Rep. Bill Pascrell, D-N.J, Head of the Ways and Means Committee on Oversight stated, “The leadership of the Social Security Administration under these men has been marked by a stunning streak of disregard, callousness, and destruction of the agency,” said Pascrell. “Saul and Black acted as foxes in the henhouse. Their agenda was not to protect Social Security but to impose cruelty on America’s seniors and disabled. Their removal is overdue and welcome.”
We are looking forward to many other positive changes within the Social Security Administration going forward, and hope that our seniors and disabled will be treated with the kindness and respect they deserve.
