Disability Sucks

The important thing to add to this is that disability benefits, like all benefits in our meager system, are not generous at all. Average monthly benefit is $1,132. This isn't a replacement for full time employment for most people. I'm sure there are a few people who "abuse" the system by doing some under the table work on the side, but if they're earning $1,100 per month you can hardly blame them.
