Articles Claiming Social Security Disability Program Is Out of Control are Just Flat Wrong
Have you read articles that attack Social Security Disability as being the “new welfare” or suggest that United States has a “disability insurance complex”? Nothing could be further from the truth.
To be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits, you must have worked 20 out of the last 40 quarters, contributing the Social Security Disability Insurance program. A portion of your paycheck has gone into this program to provide benefits to workers who are unable to perform substantial work because of a serious medical condition.
While there has been a rise in Federal Social Security Disability rules, there are a number of demographic factors that have caused this increase:
1. Aging of the United States population
2. Growth in women’s employment
3. Social Security rising retirement age
And let’s not forget one large factor- our economic down turn. Unfortunately many employers who would accommodate those with disabilities and no longer able to do so and, as a result, disabled working Americans have been left with no choice but to file for Social Security Disability benefits.
If you can no longer work as a result of disability, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits. They are disability benefits- not welfare benefits.
