Social Security Disability Applicant Statistics, 1968.
Lerner, Philip R., Comp.
About one of every 10 dollars in social security benefits under the old-age, survivors, and disability insurance program (OASDI) goes to disabled workers or their families. By the end of 1969, nearly 2,500,000 workers and dependents and 40,000 widows and widowers were receiving some form of social security disability compensation, while another 260,000 adults were beneficiaries under the childhood disability provision of OASDI. This report, based on a sample of disability records, examines the basic characteristics and employment experience of applicants for OASDI disability benefits for whom determinations were made during calendar year 1968. This series of data has been published annually since 1957. (Author)
