New bill attempts SSDI reform for the terminally ill – World News Report

New bill attempts SSDI reform for the terminally ill – World News Report.


Looks like some in Congress are looking to end the 5 month wait period for those who are terminally ill.  This would make a huge difference for many who are currently ill die before their benefits kick in.
