Parmele Law Firm Disputes 60 Minutes Report on Disability Fraud

Share Article

Parmele Law Firm, a premier provider of legal assistance for Social Security disability with offices in Wichita, KS and throughout the Midwest, strives to raise awareness about media misrepresentations of the system.

Parmele Law Firm is a law firm dedicated to helping thousands of people succeed in obtaining the Social Security benefits they deserve. Their culture fosters the belief that every individual with a disability and their family members should have access to appropriate resources and receive necessary services and support with dignity. They have found that many people with disabilities do not always receive the support they need in the U.S. due to inaccurate information, including the media as one source and a 60 Minutes expose about the Social Security disability system that aired on October 6, 2013. The coverage indicated that applicants seek and receive disability checks unfairly and take advantage of the system. Parmele Law Firm counters that while some inappropriate claims exist in every government program, the standards of the disability approval process are high and generally obstruct attempts to receive disability funding undeservedly.

Parmele Law firm has been using their experience in the disability benefits field to raise awareness of the misrepresentations of the system in the media. Past stories on 60 minutes, NPR, the Wall Street Journal and Fox News portrayed an ineffective and unfair disability benefits system. These reports presented unbalanced data and were negative and inaccurate. More recently, news releases have been more balanced in the portrayal of the disability benefits system. Additionally, government hearings and action in supporting the disabled are improving.

Parmele Law firm attorneys are dedicated to helping those in need and have written blogs on this subject to address concerns or questions. The results quantify the daily challenges, fears and deep disparities among parents of children with autism and other disabilities as compared to parents of typically developing children. Parmele Law firm strives to lead communities in action for the disabled and to provide benefits fairly and judiciously to deliver services for those people managing with disabilities.

One step towards advocating for the disabled is understanding the government legislation that is currently in process and contacting local legislators in support of the action enacted on Capitol Hill. Parmele Law firm recommends these actions for those that have difficulty in advocating for themselves.
