I have a mid 40s ex son-in-law who has been scamming S.S. Disability for the past 12 years. It’s very common.

It does seem to be very easy to get in some states. I remember that when I lived in California, I was always running into perfectly healthy-looking, active people on SSDI or SSI who boasted about how they had gotten it. One woman told me that she merely said that working gave her migraines. I kid you not.

I have a neighbor that has been scamming the system for years. She hired a lawyer and convinced a judge she had “undiagnosed pain” that prevented her from working.

The “pain” however does not prevent her from walking the dog, playing tennis, or riding her bike.

My sister's ex-husband did that. Still does as far as I know. Their two boys each got $400/mo. too, until they were 18.

I was acquainted with a woman who had been disabled for over ten years due to the stress of commuting from Fredericksburg, Virginia to Washington DC (60 miles). I’ve been doing it for longer than she’d been disabled by it.
