What are the number of appeals backlogged at the Social Security Tribunal?
The following comment was made by Fair Association of Victims for Accident Insurance Reform on the Toronto Sun site back in November of last year.
In February of this year Minister Jason Kenney pledged to wipe out the Social Security Tribunal backlog of 11,000 by this summer.
The backlog was also discussed later in the house by Mr. Robert Aubin (NDP).
He said: "Mr. Speaker, on Tuesday the chair of the Social Security Tribunal confirmed that there are significant delays in the processing of cases: 14,677 cases are languishing on her desk."
So what are the numbers now?
More importantly, how would you get rid of such a backlog of appeals...fairly?
The Tribunal Chair refuses to acknowledge or respond to my letters as an appeal applicant, or as an advocate for these disabled Canadians that have been waiting for years at the tribunal backlog.
Knowing that these disabled Canadians can't respond our government has reaped the $$$ in withholding these benefits. Appeals in the take-a-number-lineup because of bad decisions by Service Canada and their policy of delay, deny, wait for them to die.
In my case these benefits that my employers and I have paid into mandatorily since 1979.
And what of my appeal that was launched back in 2008?
Will it be fairly heard after my blogging about the Social Security Tribunal and advocating for the unknown thousands of Appellants?
What do I have to do to be heard and what will It take to at least acknowledge my correspondences by the Social Security Chair Ms. Brazeau.
