Look for this table
"SSI BENEFICIARY AND BENEFITS OVERVIEW "
Its about 1/2 to 2/3 down the page. It won't copy right, so I will edit the pertinant stuff.
(Recipients in thousands)
Average Number of SSI Recipients
Blind and Disabled 5,577
Blind and Disabled $441.00
All SSI Recipients $416.00
1132 of 6709 represents the 16% I mentioned.
In retrospect, I think your right!!! This is SSI Suplemental Security Income. It look like I have some research to find out more!
WHY I REFERENCE W/C to SSDI:
When a worker is injured, he collects workmans comp. When he "Settles" his claim, he is either put back to work with :
a.) No restrictions
b.) restrictions with partial disablility and partial SSDI Insurance
c.) deemed fully disabled collecting full SSDI.
The TRULY SAD part, is that there is a SURPLUS in SS. Look at the Income/outlay tables. Its been that way since its inception. Its the Government reappropriating it from the Federal Reserve to other programs, thats the problem.
