I work in healthcare. You would not believe how many people on SSI have no disease with a name and are on no medications, and yet are disabled. There are many who say they are depressed or have anxiety so they can't work, and yet the condition requires no treatment. I had a patient who was on disability because he had a phobia about work, so he's on permanent vacation. I have had many patients tell me they can't get a job because then their disability payments would stop. In talking with other healthcare providers, we figure 80% fakes on SSI.
