Although many people receiving Social Security disability benefits legitimately need this financial assistance, certain research has shown that there are many people abusing the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program, which could be a factor in the fund’s predicted depletion by 2016.
According to The Washington Examiner, the Social Security Administration’s survey among its SSDI recipients revealed that 2,300 of them are not eager to return to work in the near future, with 75 percent of them not seeing themselves finding a job within the next five years and 72 percent of them still receiving work salaries while under the program.
The newspaper analyzed that this scenario could be a factor as to why the national Disability Insurance Trust Fund is on its way to depletion by 2016, as per the Social Security Board of Trustees’ annual report on the long-term financial status of the Social Security Trust Funds released May 31.
