Proposed Settlement Of Kaplan Case

The Social Security Administration has posted a notice of a proposed settlement agreement and hearing in the Kaplan v. Chertoff class action pending in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. The class action has to do with delays at the Department of Homeland Security in adjudicating applications for adjustment of immigration status and naturalization. Those delays have had serious impacts upon immigrants who receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI), because of time limits for SSI benefits for some immigrants.

Jonathan Stein of Community Legal Services of Philadelphia is class counsel.
