I would like people to join me in contacting State Officials when they see people with handicap cards hanging on there mirror that is only able to walk the golf course,walk up and down hills hunting, but is not able to walk across a grocery store parking lot.As we all know Social Security fraud welfare fraud is making it hard on people who have worked there whole life and watch thugs that never worked,won,t work rob there retirement right in front of there eyes.Remember these funds are for people who deserve them,not for the lazy butts that most of them we have kept for generations.Most working families teach there kids to work.The other side teaches ther kids how to get anything and everything for nothing.Most of the lazys are so jealous that they don,t wan,t the workers to have anything either.They know how to work the system.It is time for us to make changes reporting these people.Thanks

I'm sure you probably have one person in mind as you vent. I know it's frustrating to see people walk out of their vehicle, but I have found out first hand that is not an indicator of what's going on inside a person's body. Whether its bad heart, bad lungs, cancer, etc, you never know what a person is goin through.
I look healthy on the outside, but need my handicap tag for health reasons. I don't use it for a quick trip to the grocery, because I actually can walk, but if I have to park too far out at a concert or ballgame, I barely make it to the facility.
Just to make sure you know, I do work, and do not draw a dime from the government. I am educated and work very hard. My parents paid for my education, again no hand outs from society. Physically I am a mess, but on the outside no one would know unless they saw my medical file. I like to keep it that way, but my physician knows I enjoy travel and concerts, etc, so he didn't see any reason why I couldnt have a parking permit. He knew I wouldnt abuse it.
for your info

SSI is not paid from the regular Social Security fund, so it doesn't have any affect on the benefits of the working people that paid into it. I also would like to point out that it's spelled Disabilities!

Chelsea I don't think you read his thread right, he is talking about people who get dissabilty but can go golfing, hunting, mow grass,work on there vehicles etc. I added a few more things that I have seen with my own eyes. These people do not deserve dissability. They are the ones that are killing this country, and there Doctors are just as guilty. Anyone can get dissabilty by walking into the social security office and tell them they cannot be around people or in crowds, they have anxiety. That is BS. We all feel like that at times but we go to work because we were raised to work.Things have to change in this country and the government needs to start with welfare and dissability!!!!!

For your info, it doesn't matter if he knows how to spell, he is just saying that people are getting dissabilty who don't deserve it. And I figure your one cause it sounds like he hit a nerve with you. Are you feeling a little guilty? Lets see whats your dissabilty, anxiety, bipolar, or oh do you really have a back injury??

For your info,Where does SSI come from a money tree
Simple

If they get paid on the first, they didn't earn it. It's SSI, meaning they didn;t work long enough to earn REAL Social Security. If the check comes on the third, then it's legit. That person worked long enough and paid for their benefits.

This is a great comment, because many times people just don't know what a person is going through in life, they just assume things that are not true. Just like you have said a person may look like a million bucks on the outside but not feel that way on the inside.

Same here, as long as I'm moving I am in severe pain but it Actually hurts more after I stop what I'm doing, I lock up, have muscle spasms and all the other stuff that goes with it. I have crawled into my house before after driving for a long distance.

Agree there is lots of people milking the system but not everyone is. Some people deserves to be on it. Some people have true physical and mental conditions preventing them from working. Not all people are MILKING the system. Theres a reason people like you arent working fir the Social Security Department of Disabilty Review.

YOUR SIMPLY NOT QUALIFIED TO MAKE MEDICAL DETERMINATIONS.
Unbelievable

Oh poor me people are getting something for free. Give me a damn break. You do not know what kind of disability they have so i suggest you mind your own business and quit worrying about everyone else.

you know there are INVISIBLE disabilities, things that make a person look fine on the outside...cancer, crohn's, ect. what would you have a person do? Force them by law to wear a neon flashing sign advertizing their PERSONAL medical records to satisfy your need to be in control of everything?? It's hard enough to wear the mask of "everything's ok" to keep a tiny shred of dignity and god forbid make YOU uncomfortable! disability is NOT an easy thing to be awarded, contrary to what many of you believe. try fighting leukemia for years and being denied multiple times with the reply of "yea well we see that you cant work, but we arent going to approve you cause there's GOT to be something else out there you can do" Rather than being jerks about someone getting help be THANKFUL you are healthy and dont have to live the nightmare they do.

I agree. I was only 20 years old when I got in a horrible accident & had multiple back surgeries. I also got sick with crohns disease. I didn't have enough years working to draw regular Dissability so I draw SSI. I tried to go back to work on 2 separate occasions but wasn't able to hold down a job because of pain & symptoms. You can't always look at someone on the outside & know what they are going through. I don't know why anyone would choose to be on a set income though. I would much rather be working making good money. Im taking online classes & hope to be able to get my degree & work again.
I just got diagnosed with crohns...i never understood just how horrible it could be until it going through it...hoping you're doing well

Boy it sure is incredible to listen to the people who defend those who abuse the system. If you spent half as much time doing something constructive for society as you do studying up on how to cheat it, things maybe a lot better economically. We have spawned a generation of worthless, self entitled, cheats, lowlifes and liars. 73 percent of people who are receiving SSI are thought to be committing fraud and are currently under investigation (whether they realize it or not), I hope they lock everyone one of these lazy ppl up. It takes away from those who truly need it. Wake up ppl, the government owes you nothing! Earn it like the rest of us!

I sincerely hope, for your sake, you never have a debilitating health condition....I hope you stay in good health and have the FREEDOM to control your income and work as many hours as you choose, to not be stuck on a fixed income with prescriptions you need but cant afford.

Here's a thought for you, first off I specifically said it takes away from those who REALLY need it. So obviously you didn't read my entire post. Secondly, I am disabled but I am also employed and receive no assistance whatsoever! I lost both my legs in a boating accident in 1972. I've been a business owner since 1991 and 60 percent of my employees are disabled vets and civilians with learning disabilities.
