I know a guy who didn't work a legit job a day in his life, and not only did he go on (and stay on) disability SSI starting in 1993 at age 55, but they switched him over to SS-retirement back in 2009. He's 74 now.

AND he makes beaded indian jewelry which he sells all over the eastern seaboard at pow-wows. Untaxed, and undetected.

So is there a difference? I think not.

I had to laugh. Gets free money because he drugged himself to idiot standard. BRAVO!

Well that's ONE way to get the government to take care of you.

I'm curious, if this guy didn't work a legit job and then got on SSI at 55, what did he do for money before this? The same jewelry business?

Although, my cousin's wife is 50 and she's never worked a legit job either. Before she met him she was living with her mom on SSI and Medicaid, then when she met and married him he supports her (whatever she can't get the state to pay for). I don't know how successful a man would be at this arrangement.

From the stories he told, he was an expert at impregnating women and using the "I'm disabled." crap (plus huge guilt trips and some physical intimidation) to get the woman to collect welfare for all of them, and back then, Welfare law allowed it. That, plus any jobs the woman did, plus the indian jewelry, cutting wood down, did barn work, etc. Yup. Nice guy.

Oh, this sounds about right, too, as my father's uncle pulled many of these same 'stunts' back in the 1960's and early 1970's. He got several women pregnant, lived off of his elderly mom, and scammed the food stamp program she was getting. This was back in 1970, too, not 2013. People have always been able to manipulate the system since...FOREVER.
