SSA Reduces Services Due to Budget

The Social Security Administration recently reported a loss of 4,000 employees in fiscal year 2011, and expects a loss of 3,000 employees this fiscal year and 2,000 employees in FY 2013. This adds up to 9,000 lost employees at SSA and state Disability Determination Services (DDS) offices nationwide. In FY 2012, the federal agency is operating with $400 million less than it did two years ago.
