A lot of people who have turned to Social Security for help in recent years have found long waits for the service. And because of the pandemic, things got even worse, even if the situation dates back before COVID-19.

Some of the states have been more affected by those budget cuts than others. Since 2010, the social security core operating budget has been reduced by 17%.

Now it’s being adjusted for inflation.
