Social Security Disability Claims Increase

Applications for disability benefits from the Social Security Administration soared by 21 percent, to 2.8 million, from 2008 to 2009, as the economy was faltering. Individuals with severe physical and/or mental impairments are often the last hired and first to be let go from jobs.

About 8 million workers were receiving disability benefits in June, an increase of 12.6 percent since the recession began in 2007, according to SSA.
