Many Florida residents are aware of the concerns surrounding Social Security benefits. In fact, most Americans have heard of various proposals and changes made to Social Security in order to maintain its viability for years to come. While there is no clear fix to keep these necessary programs running smoothly, there are some proposals being currently debated.
According to recent reports, Florida Senator Marco Rubio has joined ranks with two other conservative lawmakers to propose reform for Social Security disability benefits. After noting that SSD benefits are currently consuming more in government dollars, their new proposal will alter the evaluation process and how the SSA determines eligibility of applicants.
