More right wing disinformation. You guys never give up do you? SSDI isn't a handout and it's funded by payroll taxes not "your taxes". You need to have worked at least 10 years, IIRC, to get it. It can take years to get it and some people have to hire a lawyer for their case. It goes by how many work quarters you have. If someone never worked a day in their life they would not qualify.

SSDI - Social Security Disability Insurance

The rise in disabilty cases may be a factor in some states' push to reduce income taxes and increase sales taxes.

These states can get at more of the government money the feds give to their disabled citizens.
