60 minutes: Disability Fraud in the US

For anyone who missed this piece last night on 60 minutes, pretty good overview of the problem that somewhere between 25-40% of disability claims in this country are just straight-up fraud.

Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma and his staff should be commended for bringing this important waste of taxpayer funds to our attention.




I have personally seen this in my pratice too, and it usually makes me want to vomit. We will get someone in court who has just gone on a meth lab/burglary spree and the judge will ask them what they will do for employment "I'm getting my disability next month". Way more frequently than it should happen.

Like others have pointed out, while the rate of awards has kept more stable in comparison, the total number of cumulative recipients has also doubled. This may nod to what one poster said was a lack of verifying the continuing need for long-existing claims.

When I'm working and I ask someone where they work, they usually say they are disabled. 9/10 times I'll ask them why they aren't working and they'll give me a stupid answer. They are usually the same ones smoking $200 worth of cigarettes a month from their disability checks. They can't work but they can drive around drunk, beating on relatives.

I've seen families plan and work very hard to get their elementary school children declared disabled...all of their children....for the checks.

There are multiple generations of families that don't work or plan it and pass that on to the next.

Dear America,

Lazy isn't a disability.

Your friend,

There are no jobs, so I don't really blame people for cheating the system to survive. I'm sure a few folks out there are just plain lazy but the fact all these numbers have exploded since the labor market collapsed indicates to me people do want to work.

there are plenty of jobs out there. I've seen some of these people in action and they tend to frequently hate minorities calling them lazy. it's the damnest thing.

There are jobs.

The problem is, people can make $1100/month doing nothing, or $1600/month working 40 hours per week. Do the math. 160 hours of work for an extra $500?
