SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY INSURANCE IS VITAL TO WORKERS WITH SEVERE IMPAIRMENTS
The Center for Budget Policy and Priorities (CBPP), a Think Tank, released a report on August 9, 2012. It focuses on the demographics of the US population and the impact that the changing demographics have on the solvency of the Social Security programs.
In the report, Kathy a Ruffing argues that "Financing Should Be Addressed as Part of Overall Solvency."
Ruffing also explains that "Although some critics charge that spending for the program is "out of control," the bulk of the rise in federal disability rolls stems from demographic factors: the aging of the U.S. population, the growth in women’s employment, and Social Security’s rising retirement age."
This is definitely worth reading. To access the report in its entirety, you can find it here: http://www.cbpp.org/files/8-9-12ss.pdf
