SSA study explains the surge of disability insurance claimants

Recent research conducted by two economists from the Social Security Administration (SSA) recently clarified how the number of disability insurance claimants has climbed rampantly in the past years.

According to the study led by SSA economists David Pattison and Hilary Waldron, they found that 90 percent of the rise in disabled individuals is caused by population growth, an increased population of women in the workplace, and the sudden emergence of aging baby boomers. The study was developed by examining more than three decades of demographic data.

Critics of the disability insurance disability believed that SSA’s unreformed system contributed to the sudden surge of claimants in recent years.
