8.1 Million U.S. workers receive Social Security Disability benefits as of October 2010. (SSA Beneficiary Data 10/10)

Nearly 90% of of disabilities aren’t work-related and thus don’t qualigy for workers’ compensation benefits. (National Safety Council, Injury Facts, 2008 editions)

Applications for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits increased 21% from 2008 and ar projected to increase in 2010 as well, yet only 35% of initial SSDI applications were approved in 2009. (Social Security Administration)
