Social Security Disability Benefits: How It Really Works

Social Security Disability Benefits
Social Security Disability Benefits
There are now 14 million people receiving a disability check from the Social Security Administration.

"...In Hale County, Alabama, 1 in 4 working-age adults is on disability. On the day government checks come in every month, banks stay open late, Main Street fills up with cars, and anybody looking to unload an old TV or armchair has a yard sale..."
And there are plenty of other disability clusters all over the country.

A great story on how the Social Security disability system really works in the USA.

To listen to the story, you can access the MP3 audio here.

If  you like the story as much as I do, please consider donating to This American Life here, or to Public Radio in general here.

Enjoy!
