Shhhh. Don't tell the government.

The number of people who depend on checks from Social Security's disability programs has soared in recent years, according to NPR's series "Unfit for Work: the Startling Rise of Disability in America." The reports, which began over the weekend and continue this week, raise the question: How disabled are the recipients, really? As you might imagine, they have touched a nerve.

A quick primer: the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program provides monthly cash assistance to people who are poor and disabled, including families with disabled children. The basic monthly SSI cash benefit is a set amount -- currently $710 for an individual and $1,066 for a couple. The Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program also provides monthly cash assistance, to disabled people who have worked in jobs covered by Social Security. People who leave the workforce and go on disability also qualify for Medicare.

Some People Have Worked For Many Years..and Became Disabled,and had Plenty of Taxe's Taken from Them,they have paided into that Benefit's and unEmployment Benefits..Write to your Congress or Obama To Create More Job's..and stop sending Billions to the Muslim Brotherhood''and cancel some of his Fancy Costly Vacation's'' and create more Job's as he Promise''Perhaps those who are collecting thease benefits which they have Earned,may seek Employment.and add a few more years to the many years they have worked allready'''Thats what you get for being a DUMB AZZ LIBERAL!!

Not necessarily. There are different types of Disability.

People who worked their butts off for 30 years and become Disabled, and do not work off the books.

People who are scammers who are on SSI Disability, never had a real job in their life, and work their butts off OFF THE BOOKS for 20 years!

I can't understand how these people work off the books for twenty years, lying to everybody, get away with it! They do it in full view of everyone, and investigators can't figure it out???? Some of them even brag about how much they make!!! It's incredible to me!

Then you have the foreigners who do the same thing in front of everyone spitting in your face! How about them. Leeches. They size you up everywhere you go to see what they can get from you, because they are openly robbing the citizens of this country and getting away with it. And they become more arrogant by the day.

Citizens are killing themselves to pay for college for their kids, and these mocking leeches are getting it for free!

Fret not because of the Evildoers, neither be envious of the workers of iniquity, for they will soon be cut down like the green grass and will be no more.

SSI was created as a way for large cities to dump their welfare caseload onto the fed government. SHAZAM!!!!! You no longer have professional multi-generational welfare "families". Now you have eternally disabled.

you forgot to mention that if a "parent" is on SSI, their children are also entitlted to get benefits $$$$...whether or not they have another parent who is working and can afford to support the family.

the government says that they are entitled to it, so they take it whether or not they need it...THAT SHOULD STOP...
