US Congressman Rodney Davis wants the claims process to be faster for people with a terminal illness when applying for Social Security benefits.
Davis calls this long overdue as he's seen the process play out with his own family and feels it shouldn't be something people in that situation have to wait on.
Congressman Davis is introducing a bill for two physicians to sign off on the illness and for the patient to begin receiving their benefits right away.
Davis notes, many times when a person has a terminal illness, they are unable to work which is when they need those benefits.
