A Disturbing Trend in Social Security Disability Hearings

Over the past few months, I have noticed a disturbing trend in many of the Social Security hearing offices where I appear.   Many of the case files do not contain comprehensive medical records or forms that translate medical problems into specific work limitations.  Why?  Many of the free and low cost medical and mental health clinics that used to service disability claimants have closed up shop.  It seems to me that some of the judges that hear disability cases are turning down deserving cases on the basis of a thin medical file when the reason for lack of treatment is financial, not a function of the claimant’s motivation.

    I'm from atlanta Ga. and I've been going to Grady mental health for about 2yrs. It took them 40 day's after my hearing to send up to date medical request.Even though I request my records 2 months before my hearing.That's very upsetting!!!!!!
