Education

My idea isn't really for My Social Security but more for the ticket back to work, but I think it would be "heard" so to speak. While the ticket back to work is a great program, it doesn't help with those who do not already have their GED/High School Diploma. I don't know about other states, but here in FL it is very costly to take the GED classes and the GED tests themselves, thus making it very hard to get it for those ...more »

Social Security Statement

Our Social Security Statement should be available even though a user has applied for Social Security Disability. It would also be helpful for the user to be able to view their file online to see the status, the denial, etc.

Names that start with initials

My legal first name is an initial, then my middle name is spelled out. . . example ( S Mary Smith). This is on my drivers license as well as my SS Card.

BOND project for all disability beneficiaries now!

I believe the 36 month by month work test/ limit (EPE)for disability beneficiaries should be eliminated! It is currently quite the bi polar type of arrangement. One month you're below the work/earnings limit and your local office tries to jump through hoops to get you a check. The next month you earn even one buck over the limit and you're the overpaid black sheep (aka-up the creek...) I was disabled last month but now ...more »
