Based in Jamaica, N.Y., the team is currently reviewing disability medical decisions in two cases — one in New York and the other in Puerto Rico.

Social Security benefits to go up by 1.5 percent in 2014; increase among lowest in years
The Social Security Administration announced Wednesday morning that the cost-of-living adjustment, or COLA, for 2014 will rise 1.5 percent.
Preliminary figures suggest next year's benefit increase will be roughly 1.5 percent, according to an analysis by The Associated Press. The increase will be small because consumer prices, as measured by the government, haven't gone up much in the past year.
Millions of federal retirees will have to wait to find out the size of next year's cost-of-living adjustment. The Labor Department says it won't report inflation statistics on time this month, which will delay the Social Security Administration's COLA calculation.
With day one of the government shutdown over, furlough notices are out and some feds have been sent home. But the answers aren't as clear cut as they might seem, as employees at one federal agency have discovered.
Through Reginald Wells' leadership, the Social Security Administration has stayed in the top 10 of its category in the Best Places to Work in the Federal Government rankings since 2007.
