Saving Social Security Disability Insurance

Washington, D.C. – Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) and Marco Rubio (R-Florida) introduced the Return to Work Act of 2019, legislation that will save Social Security Disability Insurance from bankruptcy. This bill would help Social Security Disability Insurance beneficiaries who can recover return to work, while also preserving the program’s long-term sustainability for the permanently disabled. Congressman French Hill (R-Arkansas) introduced companion legislation in the House of Representatives.

“We shouldn’t resign people with treatable conditions to a lifetime of sitting on the sidelines. If they can get back to work, then by all means we should help them,” said Cotton. “That’s why we’ve got to fix this program so it takes into account people’s different capabilities. This will not only save the program, which is dangerously close to going bankrupt; It will save our aid for the people who need it most.”       MORE
