Social Security news and a lot of itOctober 16, 2009Jon Brooks 1 Comment »
In the process of researching yesterday’s post on the lack of Social Security cost of living increasing, we found Social Security News, maintained by a law firm that deals with Social Security Disability. Anyone interested in the minutiae of the giant bureaucracy that is the Social Security system will find oodles of information here, such as a leaked final report of Social Security’s Occupational Information Development Advisory Panel (OIDAP).
Not interested, you say? Well consider this blog post:
Although this may sound like a boring subject, it is, by far, the most important policy issue facing Social Security. An occupational information system is fundamental to Social Security disability determination. Millions of Social Security claims will be decided based upon any new occupational information system that comes out of OIDAP’s work. This is the most important policy issue that Social Security has faced in about thirty years.
Apparently, that pitch worked. When we tried to download the file we got this message: “The download limit has been reached. Please contact the sender and ask them to resend the file.”
So try again later and read it on your lunch hour.
