I have been trying for 5 years. I see so many people with disability approved and they really are ok to work and some indeed do work under table. I think SSA needs to review those on SSI and reevaluate their condition. Many got many years ago when it was easier to get. Some are on it because their parents got them approved for such things as mood or anger problem. They ride around on bikes, go to work and receive a check!!!! I worked 27 years of my life and I CANNOT WORK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This system is VERY unfair!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So no, it is not A HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MJean November 29, 2015 6:23PM Yes I always have a wonderful Thanksgiving because of God & Family & Love of the USA, in spite of all the fraud and waste and corruption in our government! So very ironic that good wishes come from a huge perpetrator of all that which has vastly increased under obama. Praying that Ted Cruz wins! Judith Light January 11, 2016 2:41PM What is it going to take to eliminate the income cap on Social Security contributions. It doesn’t make sense. Not getting a cost of living raise for the past years has been a hardship. sam January 13, 2016 12:41AM The Insurance Premiums have gone up in pensions so why can’t we get at least enough to help with that. Us people that are on Social Security and Pension have already worked for this. Stop encouraging young kids to go out and have kids when they get all the help from the government for financial support, insurance, shelters, food etc. Paying young kids to me is like prostitution (Pay for doing the wrong thing) Parents seem like they don’t have time anymore to raise them right. Now a days when people go to gatherings no one communicates everyone has an IPad. Years ago people would like to go for drives or just get away from their problems. Now they take cell phones so they get calls while driving and hold up traffic and even in public places people are on cell phones while shopping and everything else. It’s not all Social Security, it’s the world and the Government. The Ten Commandments no longer exist in this world and it is really ashame. Computers are our future with all of the violence, porn, vulgarity, no security. All your personal information is shared with all of the countries. If a bank is being robbed and anything else is happening the bad guys can find out where the law is so they don’t get caught by looking on tv, Ipads,Iphone.

Section 831 of the Bipartisan Budget Act (BBA) of 2015 eliminates aggressive claiming loopholes related to “deemed” filing and voluntary suspension of benefits. The new law will be implemented on a prospective basis only. Our legislative and policy staffs are diligently working with Congress to analyze the intent of the legislation and update our instructions. Please check back for updates.
