STOP Paper Disability Applications/Appeals From Authorized Reps!

Every Authorized Representative has Internet Access.


Submitting paper Disability applications/appeals take longer to process and are more difficult to control vs. filing those online. Authorized Reps are paid, they are not unpaid. Many authorized reps file by paper because they are operating on pure volume vs. quality. While SSA is focusing on more quality (read tranparent) they are causing us to waste time, resources, and increasing backlogs. It is 2011, attorneys are still faxing and mailing appeals! We are moving forward but if they are willing to be an authorized rep they should follow the same steps. If they want to get paid they have to file online.


The rational behind this is simple, waste is waste.
