Social Security Not-To-Work Program
Posted in: News on August 1st, 2012

disabledWhile Social Security Disability benefits provide much needed financial assistance to those who cannot work, many are beginning to criticize their efforts saying it breeds an incentive to not work. As the debate between disability and ability strengthens, some suggest that economic factors may be more to blame than government assistance programs.

To Work, Or Not To Work

The Social Security Administration offers disability insurance recipients with a chance at returning to work while continuing to receive benefits for a period of time. The Work Incentives Program was designed to help those who may be able to return to work despite their disability do so without having to forfeit their benefits immediately. It provides continued financial and medical insurance assistance while people get back on their feet. However, this program has yet to change the opinions of some who view the system as enabling.

If we look at today’s economy it is no secret that the job market is sparse and stalling. One reason for some disabled not returning to work can be attributed to a lack of employment options. It is hard enough for the non-disabled to get work these days, how can we realistically expect an employer to choose a disabled person for a position? Further, the fruitless job market is breeding a trend in applying for disability benefits once unemployment benefits run out.  When times are tough, people get creative; unfortunately, putting a heavier burden on an already stressed program.
