Social Security had made no secret of its intention to add a report feature to its Electronic Records Express (ERE) system that allows attorneys and other representing Social Security claimants to review their clients' records online. With no fanfare, Social Security added this feature today. Previously, one could only look at one case record at a time. Now, an attorney can look at a list of all of his or her cases and see their case statuses listed. It's not ideal (the ability to click on a listed case and go to that case record would be nice) but it's a big step forward.
I like the concept of underpromising and overdelivering. It's a nice change from what we saw when ERE was being planned and first implemented.
