Eliminate Waiting Period and Retro benefits

Eliminate the 5 month waiting period for Social Security Disability. People who are truly disabled need help immediately. To offset the increased cost of no waiting period, you could eliminate all retroactivity. People who wait a year or longer before they file for benefits were getting by somehow. Also, eliminate retroactivity for retirement claims.
