#1 Social Security 'Disability'.... the new welfare.

#2 Sorry Beso, it's not new at all.
I got hired to work for SSA 44 years ago when SSI was first implemented. A whole lot of us young'uns were needed to handle the grand-fathered population of NYC.
Within a week of the office opening there was a table in the lobby by some welfare scam group telling folks how to game the system.
The 3 reasons for SSI are blind, elderly and disabled. The first two are hard to fake, that last one though....... it got more sophisticated but in the beginning there were the 3 As. Angina, Arthritis, Asthma that were used as excuses for not working. To top it all off, the NYC welfare dept. made every client they had apply for SSI or they would get cut off.
I've got lots of stories about that time but they're too long to go into.

At the rate things are going, it won't be long before Disney makes a new princess modeled on her.
