The Latest and Greatest in Social Security Proceedings

The Latest and Greatest in Social Security Proceedings

On Monday, April 8th, Adjudication Committee of the Administrative Conference (ACUS), met to discuss the results of a year-long study of the Social Security adjudication process.

The ACUS is a committee Congress created to analyze the government's administrative processes and make recommendations, based on their findings.

Law4_07312014The Krent report

In 2011, the ACUS commissioned Harold Krent, Dean of Chicago-Kent College of Law to conduct a year-long study of the Social Security adjudication process - the legal process by which claims are reviewed.

The issues that Krent's report prompted the ACUS to consider are:

  1. the efficacy of the "treating physician" rule and the federal courts' application of it;
  2. the high remand rate from the federal courts and how to lower it;
  3. and expansion of the role of the Appeals Council in reviewing ALJ decisions, both favorable and unfavorable.

For those interested, Krent's report and personal recommendations can be found here.
