    After my mortgage is paid, hell I may join you, it is sickening to watch a large portion of people essentially retiring in their 30's and 40's to live on the taxpayer dime

    That means there are more than 3 times as many Americans taking disability payments as there are people living in the city of Chicago, which according to the Census Bureau has a population of 2,707,120.

    I am now 59, and very seriously considering that "option". SSDI pays the same benefit amount as if I waited until age 68 to start drawing my normal SS benefit, so it is not a bad plan to at least try that route, otherwise I can take a 75% SS benefit at age 62. Once you get on SS it is hard (impossible?) to get declared disabled. The older you are, and the lower your educational level, the easier it is to qualify for SSDI. Not many past age 60 can get/keep doing framing carpentry jobs or even doing landscaping work. Once you are out of work for a year (fairly easy to do with the recent UI extensions) it simply requires finding a doctor to say that you are unfit for your currrent kind of work, then the SS disability "hearing" folks must decide that based upon your age/education that retraining is not a viable option to seek a different "carreer" - then you "win" approval.

    The point is that they aren't really disabled.

    Technically, I qualify for disability, and there is nothing wrong with me.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
