On Friday, January 13, 2017 Social Security Commissioner Carolyn Colvin submitted her resignation to President Obama. Ms. Colvin has worked in various areas of the Department of Human Services and Social Security Administration well over 25 years. Social Security Commissioners come and go, but they all leave their stamp on the Agency trying to implement his or her vision of Social Security. Will the new Commissioner want to make it harder for disabled individuals to obtain disability benefits or not?
The Disability Program is literally a family’s financial lifeline in many cases.
