SSD: Types of Benefits
Let a SSD Attorney Help You
In 2010, Social Security benefits were awarded to 5.7 million people, which was a decrease from the 8.1 million in 2007. Furthermore, the average monthly payment to disabled workers as of October 2012 was $1,111.09, therefore demonstrating the large sum of money given to those suffering from disabilities.
More recently, the government has placed more strict regulations on who receives social security disability, largely due to the fact that people had been abusing the system. Unfortunately, for the people who truly require disability, they are finding it more difficult to receive, hence the decrease demonstrated above from 2007 to 2010.
