The number of people who receive Social Security Disability benefits have been decreasing since 2010. Where is the crisis?
Social Security’s is turning 80! Since the retirement program was enacted in 1935, it has expanded in important ways. The disability component, introduced later, is a now critical piece of Social Security, and ensures that those who aren’t able to work have a small measure of protection.
