My aunt applied for SSDI, she is only able to work about 8 hours per week. Will SSA contact current employer who she has not told about but he knows that she is currently having back problems. She is worried about it effecting her job somehow. She works 4 hours a day for 2 days a week at a desk job and can barely handle that, she is constantly worried that she will be fired. She can't afford to lose the job and it's a miracle that she found a job after getting fired from her previous employer. She doesn't qualify for unemployment and this job is her only income.

What a load of XXXX. People applying for SSDI or SSI have to qualify and it usually stakes several months to a couple years or more to be approved, you have to supply all your medical records and be seen by government doctors. Also you are not "IN FOR LIFE" IF you are approved then you will be reviewed repeatedly over your life. Of course to qualify for SSDI not only do you have to be disabled to the governments standards but you also have to have worked a certain number of years based on your age when you apply.
So MOST people on SSDI and SSI are not fraudulent at all. Also there is a program allowing those on these programs to work for a certain amount of time while receiving benefits.
Also many disabilities are not visible.
