There is a truly excellent online Special Report published today by The News Journal in Delaware, entitled Shut Out of Social Security. The special report tells the story of five disability claimants, and takes the Dover, Delaware Hearing Office to task for having one of the lowest claim approval rates in the country.
A main feature of the special report is five audio slideshows telling the story of each of the five claimants, like Joe Jones, pictured above. Each audio slideshow is under two minutes in length. They are compelling, and I urge you to watch each of them. These are the universal stories of Social Security disability claimants.
