This is very sad for people who do qualify and need it.
 Quoting: AKObserver


Pretty much. My girlfriend was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, and pretty severe at that. It took 5 doctors writing on her behalf AND an attorney to qualify at all (and 2 years of me doing paperwork), because of all the fraud being perpetrated on the system. This is a woman who worked 3 jobs and always paid her dues for decades before she got sick...meanwhile, we had a neighbor who was on it because she just couldn't stop herself from eating McDonald's 3 times a day and got too fat. Figure that one out.

First of all there is SSI and there is SSDI and the two are not the same. SSI is welfare; meant to be short duration relief. You need not have a work history to get on SSI. SSDI is disability Insurance and you have to work and earn a minimum number of quarters to qualify. Thirdly, the vast majority; upwards of 90% of those who apply are denied the first time. Of those who appeal approximately only 7 to 9% are approved on what's called "reconsideration". After that the applicant has to file a second appeal and go in front of and administrative law judge. The entire process can take up to 2 years or more in some cases.
It is NOT easy folks, regardless of the bullshit armchair opinions being recklessly thrown around. I have known some good folks, with legitimate disabling conditions get rejected multiple times. I'm sure as with everything in life that some will try and game the system. However when the average monthly SSDI benefit is $1000. Bucks, nobody is getting "fat and rich off of "you". It's a popular little passing fancy we forum riders love to trot out now and again and pontificate on the societal malfeasances.

Social Security Disability Fund Running Out Of Money, Is It Due To Fraud?

The Social Security disability insurance trust fund is running out of money some time between 2016 and 2017 it will be done.

^^^^^^^ THIS!!! Has even more to do with it than the high number of fraudulent cases. The sheer volume of virtual "IOU's" should have resulted in arrests but all parties are guilty of seeing that "enormous pile of ever increasing tax dollars", flowing into the Social Security accounts & deciding that they knew best about how the money should be used & "dipping into it" until the problem was to monstrous to hide. Sickening.

My great nephew has been on SSI for several years. He was born moderately mentally retarded. He functions at a level of a 6 year old, and has great difficulty speaking, and being understood. He will never be able to live on his own, or do most things that a lot of us take for granted. He turned 18 in December, and is still in school. SSI is trying to boot him off. He has to go for re-evaluations this week, and it doesn't look good for him to stay on. Disability, both SSI and SSD, have been kicking people off, or denying benefits to those that are severely disabled, and under age 50. According to a lawyer I know that handles these cases, Downs Syndrome clients, and even severe diabetics who are amputees and wheelchair bound, have been denied, or booted off.

Social Security has already been plundered of #3,000,000,000,000.00 on the promise itwas a loan; never paid it back, then passed a law making the theft legal.

Now we live below poverty income, and theyare plannig to make it worse. Even though we, the private-sector workforce, paid into the private account for our entire lives of paychecks, with no help from anyone.

GET THE KHAZAR MAFIA OUT of my castrated governmen ! ! !
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 24630347


I must disagree. You can't steal NOTHING. Paper "money" and computer "money" are not REAL. They are NOTHING. Where is the crime?

Here, take these $3,000,000,000,000.00

Now everything is balanced.

Here is how it works.

People (real) go to a job for 40 hours a week (real) and they make things or provide services (real) only to get "paid" with paper or computer digits.

Still don't get it?

Gold and silver have real value.

Real things like food and clothing have real value.

Paper and computer digits = NO VALUE.

Even children understand FAKE. Why don't adults?

Pay attention to the word "swindlers" in this video. All TOP level bankers are swindlers and they have the USA govt to FORCE you and me to use FAKE paper money and computer digits.

You god damned right its due to fraud. I know tons of people young and old who milk that shit hard with zero and I mean zero real disabilities. Back pain, siaticia, buldging disc, chronic headaches, carpel tunnel. Yes some of those things can hurt and minimize functionality but not to the extent of a serious disability rating, they need job retraining and replacement in their current field. Fuck them all to hell for it.

Another cousin has hepatitis due to his drug use, but hasn't been sick in years. A friend has a "bad back", but can chop wood and do all kinds of physical work for cash.

All 5 of these want someone to take care of them.

I would consider most collecting disability money to be committing fraud, most that are claiming to be disabled are lazy and found a loophole to use so they don't have to work...also allowing illegals to collect disability is bleeding the system dry, they never paid anything into the system and are criminals to boot

Also when the guidelines allowing people to receive benefits for something that cannot be determined one way or the other (ie: fibromyalgia and a handful of other similar "diseases" that have zero ability to be proved medically) and someone that claims to not be able to sit at a desk and answer a phone or do anything requiring non physical work can sit around and play video games, watch tv and play on their phone or computer
Then they are NOT disabled

Fraud is rampant in EVERYTHING that the government operates especially things that provide someone an out from their responsibilities !!!!
But since it's racist to require that common sense is used to deny these poor people an excuse to not work......NOTHING WILL EVER CHANGE !!!!

While there may be some truth to your claim, EVERY ONE on disability has their cases reviewed by the SSA every couple of years. SSA reexamine the claims and makes a determination as to whether the claimants are still disabled. If not they are dropped from the program. Remember this, be it a Tom Coburn or his polar opposite such as a barbera boxer, each is a politician and each has their own political agenda for or against such programs. Don't believe the hype! They are simply mining for votes. They don't give a rats ass about who should or shouldn't be receiving ssdi or any other .government programs; so long as they get votes.

My 18 year old nephew had several tests today, as part of the review of his disability. The "tests" were something my 4 year old grandson could do easily. They showed him pictures of things, like blue cars, yellow cars,white shoes, black shoes,yellow houses, red houses, etc. He was asked to pick out a certain color car, house, or shoe on the placards.
He knows his colors, and he knows what shoes, houses and cars are. To make a long story short, the examiner said he passed all the tests, and he can work as a bagger in a grocery store, or a similar job. My nephew has speech that is very difficult to understand. If you are someone who is not around him an awful lot, you might be able to understand 10% of what he says. I can only understand about 70% of what he says, and I see him constantly. He substitutes an "S" for a "P" and vice versa, for a lot of his words, and some words are totally unintelligible. He stresses easy too, because most people cannot understand what he is saying, and he has trouble processing various tasks and other things.He has to be supervised in everything he does. He is moderately mentally retarded.
When we were done, and the examiner said my nephew could work,I gave the examiner a piece of my mind. It totally pisses me off, that alcoholics and drug users have no problem getting on disability, or staying on, but my nephew, who was born this way, and will always be like this, will probably be booted off the disability.
I called my sister-in-law, who is in the hospital, to tell her to fight this with an attorney. She has been raising my nephew and his siblings.
From what I have been told by an attorney who specializes in disability cases, both new cases and appeals, the government is booting people off disability, or denying disability to truly disabled people. The attorney told me, that Downs Syndrome clients and even people who are amputees in a wheelchair, and severe diabetics, are being kicked off, or denied.

To say "most" are fraud instantly identifies you as as an uninformed idiot.

According to investigators fraud rate is less than 2%. But I'm sure you internet armchair cowboys' opinions are far more accurate on all subject matter. So if you say the MAJORITY of disabled people are frauds then it simply MUST be true.

Of course you do realize that banks, the military-industrial complex and rogue elements within the government are working very hard every day to steal all your money and kill you? So it's really important to be a complete retard and allow yourself to become agitated by falsities about disability benefits just as the media has worked hard to do. You believe it. So you are a liar, shill or brineless moreyawns.

is the right of contract the only way to enslave a free man ?

Are Federal Reserve Notes bonded out ?



What if the job application you signed matures every two weeks ?


and you receive the interest ?
do you call that a paycheck ?

The federal government is really pushing for people like your nephew to find real jobs and is coming down hard on jobs and programs that don't pay minimum wage. So they are essentially saying that someone like your nephew could compete sucessfully for the same job that your nephew would be. What stores have grocery baggers anymore btw? So they are going to have to do some type of "affirmative" action law for people like your nephew to force people to hire them and lose money (no offense) in an economy where businesses are already broke due to Obama care.

Re: Social Security Disability Fund Running Out Of Money, Is It Due To Fraud?
I'm on soc security disability and it's not a fraud. I am in my 40's and since age 21 have struggled to keep a job mostly due to attendance/improper interactions that made me stand out. Most of my issue has been depression and my mom killed herself from it...some people can shake themselves out of it/sometimes meds help..most of the times it doesn't. My mother was age 50 and paid into soc security for many years...i was too old to get money..so her contributions went to nobody. Most applicants are denied disability, then you before a judge and are rep'd by an attorney...after one hr of contstant questions..i was given one yr disability..getting less then 2 grand a month when my friends make 100k year in New York..isnt playing the system....i now might be breaking up with girlfriend...you think 1600 month can afford a rent for 750 month??

Humm most vets have something wrong with them.PTSD comes to mind as one thing.Many have severe emotional issues and a lot cant function in daily life.Its sad that people judge one another based on what they think they see.But the bottom line is usually due to envy because they think someone else is getting something they also feel entitled to but cant get for whatever reason.

Re: Social Security Disability Fund Running Out Of Money, Is It Due To Fraud?
I am curious, does disability check resources or is it for the disabled AND poor? I used to know this guy who lived with his parents, was on disability for some learning issue or ADD. He was a bright guy just was very lazy from what I recall. He told me a few times that he gets social security whenever conversations came up about wtf is he doing for work, and I really thought that wasn't fair to people who are poor. He didn't have work income but everything was taken care of from his parents who weren't rich but well off. Even if his disability is genuine, so what? I think living conditions and income of everyone in household should be taken into consideration. More attention should be given to disabled/elderly who need the money to live.

I live in a very conservative county. In my area they call SSD "Republican welfare".

Almost everyone I know of ,in this county, who collect SSD are NOT disabled.

I know it is difficult to get SSD if you are working. Some people go broke waiting for SSD. Some people don't care if they go broke waiting for SSD.

I know people with severe diabetes that work. I know people with severe heart problems that work. I know people with artificial limbs that work. I don't understand how some people that don't seem to have any problems doing anything can't work. I know there are lots of training programs for disabled people to get to a point where they can work.
