Michael Hiltzik at the Los Angeles Times doesn't like the idea of reducing Social Security disability benefits because of the receipt of unemployment insurance benefits. As he points out, this would only estimated to save $100 million a year. That estimate almost certainly doesn't include the cost of implementation. The cost of implementing new Social Security provisions is never taken into consideration. There's also the problem of state laws that run an offset in the opposite direction potentially subjecting a claimant to double offsetting.
