    SSN Disability


    Old screed from September. The award system is backlogged, and it takes a judge to review the details, so they were rubber-stamping a lot of cases, and a lot of fraud was getting through, coming from people supplementing their income during the job crunch. The irony here is that this happened because the SSA wasn't hiring enough judges...

    But really, the fraud is going to turn out to be a few percent of the increase. Most of will simply be people being informed they can get disability benefits for things they didn't know were qualified. They weren't getting what they had paid for and now they are.
