Sign-on Letter - Fight Back Against Proposed Rule Change from The Social Security Administration
The Social Security Administration (SSA) announced a proposed rule change that would remove the “inability to communicate in English” from the list of educational categories that are considered when SSA determines who qualifies to receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefits.

To fight back, you can submit comments to the Social Security Administration directly and/or sign on to the letter below, developed by the Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP) and the National Immigration Law Center (NILC), on behalf of the Protecting Immigrant Families, Advancing Our Future (PIF) Campaign.

We will be accepting sign-ons to the comment until Monday April 1 ET at 5:00 pm ET (2:00 pm PT).
If there are any questions, please email Jackie Vimo ( or Madison Hardee (
