Did Trump Propose SSI Changes That Could End Disability Benefits for Thousands?

Of the year 2019, readers asked us about reports that claimed the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump had proposed changes to how Social Security disability payments are created, which may cause thousands, even hundreds upon hundred, to burn their benefits.

On Dec. 12, the Philadelphia Inquirer and Chicago Tribune posted a post with the headline “Trump Administration Proposes Social Security Rule Changes That Could Cut Off Thousands of Disabled Recipients.” Your article reported that: “The Trump administration proposed changes to Social Security. The change could terminate disability payments to hundreds of thousands of Americans, particularly older people and little ones. The new rule would change how the government review disability applicants cases. The methods  the Social Security Administration determines whether a person continues to be eligible for benefits. Few recipients are aware of one’s proposal, which happens to be open for public comment through January.”

The left-leaning website Common Dreams published an editorial considering the headline “‘ A National Disgrace’: Trump Proposes Social Security Change That Could End Disability Benefits for Hundreds upon hundreds.'” That story reported: “Activists are performing to improve public awareness concerning  Trump administration to save disability benefits from hundreds of thousands of individuals by further complicating the way the Social Security Administration determines who qualifies for payments.”
