Proposed White House Budget Looks To DRASTICALLY Cut Social Security Disability

The Trump Administration recently released its proposed budget and it is not good news for the sick, injured and disabled who rely on the Social Security Disability system to meet their basic needs. 

Proposed budget drastically cuts Social Security Disability

In short, despite promising to not cut Social Security, the proposed 2018 budget slashes almost $75 BILLION from the disability programs alone.  These cuts, if passed, will have devastating and long-lasting consequences to you, your family, your neighbors, and the millions of others who become sick, injured or disabled. 

Our friends at the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities have prepared a short 2 page fact sheet about the proposal outlining the changes and harmful effects.  Please read it and share about the catastrophic cuts with your family and friends.

Then, and most importantly – call your Senator and Representative and express your displeasure with the proposed budget’s cut to SSA!  You can find the number for your Senator and Representative here.

I live in Pennsylvania and I have been scouring the website to see how Trumps proposed changes will affect people like me who have been getting SSDI for a long time. I started getting SSI at age 19 in 1992. In 2001 my SSI changed to SSDI after paying into the system for over 3 years come 2001. Since 2007, I have been getting an SSDI check for me and an SSDI check from my Dad retiring as a Disabled Adult Child Benefit getting a total of 2 checks a month. I would like to know how Trumps cuts would affect people like me and others like me around if these 2019 SSDI cuts go through.
