Let's see this graph after they bump up the grid rules. Prediction: magically there will be a ton fewer 50 year olds who aren't disabled
@Anon 3:24You mean if they bump up the grid rules. One currently interesting statistic is the large percentage of people who were denied disability benefits, but who are still unable to find any work within their medical restrictions. If you bump up the grid ages I predict you would see that figure swell even larger. It would also tend to increase the backlog, perhaps dramatically, at a time when SSA should be doing everything within its power to reduce the backlog. Bumping up the grid ages seems like the latest in a list of bad ideas just designed to cut assistance to people with disabilities.
Remove the work restrictions on those fifty years and older, problem solved. Most people on SSDI can work part-time but not full time. Let them work and pay back into the system...but who am it to do know how to fix the problem. Release the people on SSDI and let them go free.
@1256Nope. When, not if. Only a matter of time
I looked at the arguments for changing the grid rules. Lots of nonsense. Nothing substantive and relevant has been cited to justify the change in my opinion. Also, they should wait for the new system that they are going to use to replace the Dictionary of Occupational Titles. Then, with the hopefully more accurate system, you could do a serious study that looks at a lot of real people with exertional impairments and the vocational factors in question. That would provide useful information on how well the current grid rules predict ability to sustain full-time competitive work.
