ILLINOIS (RFD) — This month marks the 29th year of the Americans with Disabilities Act, or ADA. Social Security’s Jack Myers says the agency has strict criteria for disability benefits. To qualify, individuals must have a condition that is expected to last for at least a year or result in death prior to a year.
Contrary to popular opinion, Myers points out nobody gets rich off of disability benefits. They are supposed to help families survive but are not enough to fully replace wages.
