That's why it's called insurance.These laws must be changed along with a asset limit on collecting normal SS.
You're jealous.

With the situation you described, I consider unethical and immoral if a person has a lot of money in the bank or assets yet is collecting a disability check! Heck, from a legal standpoint, maybe fraud could be applied!

Once a hip is replaced, you're not disabled anymore. As long as procedure went well and no complications, you're usually good to go after 6 mths. or so. Not sure how they could qualify for anything related to that hip. You can do most things after a replacement, people live normal lives with some exceptions.

Thats what I thought. Workmans comp could take care of you, or your own policy if self employed. When your healed, get back out there like a man! Once a lawyer gets you on SSDI, I would bet not many people say okay, I'm better now, take me off the dole. It has to be a huge part of the US mandatory spending. Just found out yesterday, another inlaw was on SSDI in NY. I agree they don't get much but what he did was move to FL and started a moving business and is still on NY SSDI for a back injury! If thats not fraud what is? I'm probably breaking the law by not reporting these people.

Yes I am, I don't deny it. My hard earned tax money is funding this mismanagement of a program designed to help truly disabled people with no family to help them. You can't blame the recipients if they're legally getting these benefits.

This is how the State pits us slaves against each other.

You shouldn't have your money stolen from you at gunpoint to begin with.

why be jealous???


this is how the government (including states and cities) run


I had a friend who was NYPD....spent 6 years on the job... got into a car wreck on the job...damaged her leg (she has a noticeable limp and you can see her wince with pain on certain movements


the city give her 3/4 disability at the age of 28....so she gets 3/4 pay...tax free...for the rest of her life


meanwhile a PO who does 20 and retires...gets a 50% retirement that is taxable


should all PO's be jealous of her??? I think not
