In our June issue, the article HHS Bill: Mixed Results, under the subheading, SSI Penalty for Low-Income Families Removed, incorrectly states, “Low-income families affected by disability will no longer be subjected to this penalty, effective July 1, 2007.” The correct date is February 1st, 2008. The author sends her apologies for the error, and writes, “I am really sorry for the families who have to live with the financial hardship for another seven months.”
