Senate Panel Uncovers Millions in Disability Fraud

Story at-a-glance -

  • The Federal Disability Insurance Program has a $135-billion budget and serves close to 12 million people, but its funds are in danger of running out
  • The Senate Subcommittee for Investigations believes the program is being abused – by lawyers, doctors and even some recipients – putting the benefits for those who truly need them at serious risk
  • According to the Senate investigation, up to 25 percent of disability files should not have been approved and another 20 percent are highly questionable
  • Some Americans are using disability benefits as a financial bridge after their unemployment benefits run out; it’s easy to do since so many Americans have chronic conditions or impairments
  • As a whole, Americans are not healthy – they're tired, depressed, stressed out and often in pain – taking control of your health can help you to avoid disability and heal your body naturally
