Look for this table


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)
Estimate 2004

Average Number of SSI Recipients

Federal Payments:

Aged 1,132
Blind and Disabled 5,577
Subtotal 6,709

Aged $293.00

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!

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.
