One has to question their seriousness. When politicians speak of things related to Social Security, the question that comes to mind is often "Do they really mean that or are they just saying it for effect?"
Social Security disability (SSD) claimants are easily worried when questions are raised concerning their benefit payments. The process of obtaining those benefits is often long and complex, and most applicants have no experience of dealing with bureaucratic procedures of the Social Security Administration and the state-operated Disability Determination Services in Missouri and Illinois, where much of the work in processing a claim is performed.
Once you have been approved for disability benefits, some disabled workers find that for a variety of reasons, they may experience an improvement in their disabling condition. Perhaps it is because of improved health care or because they no longer engage in the type of work that caused or aggravates their condition.
