PAN Alert: Deadline Extended to Submit Comments on Parkinson's Social Security Disability Rule

The Parkinson's Disease Foundation (PDF) has received another important update from the Parkinson's Action Network (PAN) about Social Security disability insurance.

From PAN:

The Social Security Administration (SSA) has extended its deadline to submit comments on its proposed revisions to rules used to evaluate whether people with Parkinson's and other neurological disorders qualify for disability to June 2, 2014.

If you haven't yet submitted comments, there is still time to make your voice heard. We've put together sample comments and instructions on how to submit to SSA for your convenience.

You can learn more and submit your comments now by visiting PAN's website.

This is a unique opportunity to fundamentally change for the better how SSA recognizes Parkinsonian syndrome and evaluates its effects for determining disability. Please take a few minutes to share your story.

Thank you to the hundreds who have submitted comments already. There is nothing further you need to do at this time, and we will keep you updated as the rulemaking process moves forward.

PAN is the voice of the Parkinson's community in Washington, DC. In fiscal year 2014, PDF is supporting PAN with a grant of $200,000.
