disability insuranceWhen evaluating the problems that are plaguing Social Security Disability Insurance at the moment, it may be helpful to evaluate the history of the program and how the percentages of adults who claim Social Security Disability Insurance has changed over the past 20 or 30 years.

The Changes in Percentages

A government survey that took place in 1981 showed that about 7.3% of all Americans were classified as disabled. Of this percentage, 35% continued to work in spite of their disability, and approximately 32.6% of disabled individuals received payments from the government. This is a stark contrast with the trends today: while 7.8% of the current population can be classified as disabled, only about 22.6% of that percentage continue to work.

Many people blame the fact that there are higher numbers of individuals who are applying for and receiving Social Security Disability Insurance in the recessionary economy. There is some truth in this: when it is hard for able-bodied people to find work, the pressure on those who are living with disabilities is even higher. The task of those who are attempting to rehabilitate Social Security Disability Insurance is Herculean in scope, but so much of it depends on the ability of disabled people to be able to get back into the workforce when they decide to.

The best way to accomplish this is to attempt to resuscitate the economy and also provide work programs that have appropriate incentives attached to them. In this way, a balance can be struck between the number of Americans who are disabled and the varieties of work that are made available to them. Just because an individual has a disability does not mean that they are unable to work; however, the fact that there are fewer jobs available ultimately hinders the process.
