Shelter seeks to add facilities for disabled residents

A new initiative in Waynesboro may provide additional shelter options for disabled residents in the Pennsylvania town. The additional rooms will be available to people who receive Social Security Disability payments, and they will be located in the New Hope Shelter on South Potomac.

Implementing 529 plans, a new possibility for SSD recipients

Parents of college-bound kids have a variety of helpful savings tools at their disposal, including 529 plans that provide distinct tax advantages.

This isn't just a problem for individuals who may be unable to work because of an injury or illness. Our nation's war heroes are also suffering because of the labyrinthine process required to obtain disability money after returning from combat. A new system should ease the process for these Wounded Warriors, allowing them to receive Social Security disability payments faster and with less hassle.

Chester man sentenced for SSDI benefit fraud
