It seems there could be legislation written to easily fix the problem which seems obvious. It also seems ripe for a bipartisan fix. For all the other issues that spur partisan rancor, this seems to be a no nonsense bill that Congress should support. This isn't a rich versus poor issue. It's not an issue that is determined by geography. Cancer and other terminal illnesses don't discriminate. We would hope that folks like Sen. John Barrasso, a doctor himself, or maybe Sen. Mike Enzi, an accountant, would understand the medical and financial hardship this can place on families.

The loophole Moyer and his deceased wife, Tina, experienced isn't the result of out of control spending. It's not a partisan issue. It is the result of unintended consequences, buttressed by laws that make sense except on those rare occasions where they don't.

Brian Moyer seems to be a testament not only to the power of a promise made to a dying spouse, but the tenacity and change one person can affect. He's done a convincing job of showing the problem.

The problem wasn't that the Moyers were money grubbing. Because of medical treatment and loss of income, Social Security could have provided additional help to offset those Nike Pink Sweatshirt Womens

The fix seems so obvious: Document a terminal condition or a way to waive the waiting period for people like Tina Moyer, who, because of horrible circumstance, won't be able to utilize their earned Social Security benefits over the long haul.

Tina Moyer was diagnosed with terminal cancer. She was given little time to live. When she could not work, she applied for Social Security benefits. After all, she'd paid into the system. Yet, when she applied, she was told there was a mandatory five month waiting period.

approved, perhaps.

For Tina, the wait was too long. She died and Brian Moyer received a lump sum "death benefit" of $255.

Though it, may seem like a rather odd approach, the system is designed to thwart fraud. In order to qualify, beneficiaries who apply early even with a legitimate reason have to wait. This waiting period helps to discourage fraud by making the wait long enough to ensure those who might fall back on it without need can't without severe hardship.

Yet, his one man cause seems like the kind of request that shouldn't take a catastrophe to bring it to light.

The problem wasn't some heartless bureaucrat. It wasn't the shuffle of federal paperwork. The problem was that Social Security rules mandated Nike Sportswear Tech Fleece Windrunner

For right now, Moyer has been lobbying members of Congress, pushing a petition and trying to get some other group to latch on to the issue.

Meanwhile, Brian Moyer has been a one man cause, trying to raise awareness of the issue, which admittedly and thankfully doesn't affect many. And that's the problem. Folks can sympathize with Moyer, but few will have to experience the odd five month waiting period.
