The Disability Law News is a quarterly newsletter published for DAP Advocates. In this issue, we continue to report on SSI Eligibility in Puerto Rico. The Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in U.S. v. Vaello-Madero that challenges the constitutionality of the exclusion of residents of Puerto Rico from the SSI program. We also discuss SSA’s 2022 COLA increase and provide an update on COVID-19 and SSA’s office reopening plan. Finally, several new Regulations and Administrative Decisions are included in this issue.
