Appeals/Section 504

DCSummit214Appeals Process— The non-disability appeals process is broken in both Social Security and SSI with inexcusable delays that make life difficult for recipients who rely on the programs for their income security. NSCLC is working with SSA and with local advocates to identify problems and recommend solutions.

At a February 2014 Advocate’s Summit in Washington, DC pictured here , NSCLC attorneys heard about the problems with the current system.

Section 504 — NSCLC continues to advocate for appropriate, workable Social Security Administration Section 504 policy to ensure appropriate accomodations for the elderly and those with disabilities.
