Recently, The Washington Examiner published an article that analyzed a 2009 Social Security Administration report in-depth, noting the number of Americans receiving disability payments and the characteristics of these recipients.
According to the article, about 11 million Americans are on Social Security Disability Insurance, which provides people who have been previously employed and put some of their income into Social Security before becoming disabled, while around seven million Americans are receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI), which provides disability benefits to those who have a limited income and have petitioned to be classified as disabled.
Additionally, the 2009 report and The Washington Examiner‘s analysis of it show that check recipients in the SSI program were experiencing less bodily pain than those who had paid money into Social Security and were receiving SSDI payments. Those receiving SSI payments were also more likely to be overweight, lack education, and had broken homes.
