Given the number of Americans on disability today, it would seem that there is some horrific ailment sweeping the nation.

Except there isn’t.

For almost 200 straight months, the number of Americans collecting disability has increased. Shocking new statistics show that the number of Americans receiving disability payments now exceeds the total population of Greece, which according to the Central Intelligence Agency’s World Factbook is 10,772,967.

According to stats released by the Social Security Administration, 10,962,532 people received disability payments from the government in April (this includes the individual who is disabled, spouses, and children). Of those receiving checks, 8,865,586 people are disabled.

A disabled individual receives about $1,129.63 per month. The average monthly payment for disability (which includes spouses and children) is $977.50.

April was the 195th consecutive month that the number of Americans collecting disability payments has increased.

According to figures from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were only 13 full time workers for every worker receiving disability in April. Some find this unsettling, since back in 1968, there were 51 full time workers for every worker receiving disability.

What has changed since then? Has our country really become that ridden with sickness and hazards over the last 35 years?

You tell me.
