Lawsuit Being Filed Against the Social Security Administration

The Social Security Administration (SSA) provides a listing of impairments for conditions that may qualify for Social Security disability benefits. If you suffer from a permanent disability, you may qualify.

The heat is on the SSA, as a group of disabled employees has filed a lawsuit against the federal government entity. On August 25, 2010, a class action lawsuit was brought before the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

The very place that helps to provide disability benefits to more than 160 million people in the United States is now being sued for discrimination against its own disabled employees.

 

The accusations against the SSA include limited advancement opportunities and promotions. This lawsuit includes not only current employees of the SSA but former employees who on or after August 22, 2003 were denied promotions, even though these employees were listed as being "best qualified."

There are approximately 2,000 employees who make up this lawsuit and it include those with the following types of disabilities:

 

  • mental illness;
  • blindness;
  • partial/complete paralysis;
  • deafness;
  • convulsive disorders;
  • missing extremities;
  • mental retardation; and
  • genetic/physical conditions that affect the spine and/or legs.

 

If you suffer from a permanent disability that prevents you from working and/or functioning on a daily basis, you should contact a Social Security disability lawyer. They can help determine if you qualify for Social Security disability benefits.
