Number Of Americans On Disability Could Populate State Of Georgia — Or 42 Other Stat

05.08.13 01:38 PM

Only seven States have a population greater than the total number of Americans now on government disability, according to data just released by the Social Security Administration (SSA).

For the month of April, the SSA reported 10,962,532 beneficiaries receiving payments from the Disability Insurance (DI) Trust Fund. That number represents a consistent monthly increase in public disability enrollment that dates all the way to 1997 — the last time the number actually went down.

Georgia, the Nation’s eighth most-populous State, had a 2010 Census population of 9.68 million. That means the government is funding enough people on disability to subsidize (or fund altogether) the incomes of everyone in the State of Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina or 39 other less-populous States.

Meanwhile, the size of the U.S. labor force is shrinking.
