Improve the Timeliness and Quality of the Disability Process

SSA is facing a considerable increase in initial and reconsideration disability claims, resulting in a significant backlog. The Agency received almost 3 million initial claims and more than 784,000 reconsideration claims in Fiscal Year 2013. In addition, in July 2014, SSA had over 662,000 initial disability claims pending.
