Is the US legal and welfare systems relating to disability insurance benefits, sufficient.

The United States has several welfare programs devised to render assistance to qualified individuals. Under the Social Security Administration, there are several welfare benefits that has been wage by the federal government all for giving the needed financial assistance and benefits to those qualified members.

In brief, under Social Security, we have programs like, SSDI - Social Security Disability Insurance; SSI - Supplemental Security Income. In like manner, under the federal government welfare system, we have the HHS - The U.S. federal Department of Health and Human Services and the LTD - Private Long-Term Disability Insurance.

The big question now goes, is the US legal and welfare systems relating to disability insurance benefits, sufficient.

To answer the question directly on positive note is impracticable; more so cannot be credible as the same is controversial.

The Social Security Disability Insurance system is mandated to protect workers from suddenly losing all sources of income with an unexpected disability. However, as I opine, it has become seriously flawed.

Why do I say so? Well, there are widespread frauds that infiltrated the social security administration aside from the fact that there are anomalous people who are faking the system that makes it much harder for the system to uproot the same.

As a fact then, that real people with real disabilities, and their real families, suffer.

In addition to this piece of reality, it can be added that several real claimants have been denied of their disability claims due to lack of proper knowledge of the systems and proper representation of a social security lawyer in their respective claims.

What can we do then? To my mind these frauds and denials can be all throughout avoided or much less minimized when proper coordination and communication is had among the government and the citizenry.

Coordination in a sense that, the government must directly address this concerns less bureaucracy. The government must wage a bridge to break the gap between the realities of the claimant’s lives and the parameters of the bureaucracy.

Communication is needed in a sense that, the claimants must learn how to communicate their disability predicaments to the government. A good lawyer is the key to this. The qualified social security lawyer is trained to communicate with the system. They are adeptly knowledgeable of the travails of the entire system that would not let your claims put at naught.

To my mind, the answer to the big question would be, yes. The US legal and welfare systems relating to disability insurance benefits are more than sufficient to address these concerns. A matter of coordination, communication, coupled with knowledge and good representation of a lawyer can solve this gap and gray situations for the claimants of these federal mandated benefits.
