Fellow Federationists:

As many of you may have heard, the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 was 
passed by the Senate early this morning. We expect that President 
Obama will sign it in the very near future. Thanks to everyone who 
made calls yesterday. This bill ensures that SSDI will be funded 
until 2022 and contains many valuable provisions, including a 
demonstration project which conducts a $2-for-$1 phase-out program, 
the opportunity to report earnings electronically, and simplification 
for how earnings will be counted each month. We will continue to 
analyze the content and will provide more details soon.

Once the president signs the bill, our advocacy will continue with 
the Social Security Administration as they begin to develop 
regulations to implement this legislation.

Thanks again for all of your hard work.

Very sincerely,

Parnell Diggs, Esq.

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the 
characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise 
the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create 
obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life 
you want; blindness is not what holds you back.

the Blind and help ensure all blind Americans live the lives they want.
