Default New Budget Deal

No idea if this statement is true, but if so, it could certainly change what benefits people are receiving by a large percentage.

"The other big detail worth mentioning is to the disability benefits program under Social Security. Benefits are currently calculated based on a recipient's past income. The deal would change benefits to a flat rate for everyone, and require two doctors to certify when someone is disabled."

For people like me who made minimum wage for most of my life this is better. I get SS for disability and it is a small check. Would be impossible for me to live on if I didn't get the VA check.

There are quite a few proposals that would affect the solvency of Social Security over time (see link below). I have yet to read them, but bear in mind that these are only proposals and nothing is set in stone. If anyone has more recent information from reliable sources, please provide links.

I would hope that any changes benefit many and not hurt any of those already struggling.

On edit: Anything that makes it easier for people to prove disability and shorten the wait for benefits, and provide a larger benefit for those in dire need would be something to celebrate.
