What is the problem with social security?
The problem that many people see is that as the Baby Boom generation retires, social security costs are going to become so high that the system may not be adequately funded by the payments made by the existing work force.

Apply through your nearest Social Security office
Unfortunately, this is the same thing and you cannot.
Yes !! ( In case of fraud, duplicate, different multiple numbers etc.).
For this purpose you will have to apply through the Social Security Administration process. Make sure that you specify that you seek disability, rather than retirement, benefi…ts. You may be able to start the process by going to the SSA gov website SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS ONLINE. Alternatively, you can call the Social Security Office closest to you and schedule an initial appointment. It is probably more efficient to complete the forms online, as they are rather extensive. Before you begin, you should assemble information pertaining to your physicians, past employers, and various other categories of material that is enumerated on the website. If you have it at hand before you start the online process, the going will be easier. Therefore, review the website before you plan to complete the application so you can gather the needed information. Once you have made the online submission, Social Security will determine if you have the requisite "credits" or "quarters" paid into the system to qualify for benefits. If you do not, the rest of the process is moot; if you do, it will move forward. Among other things, Social Security will obtain medical records from treating physicians, counselors, hospitals, and others from whom you obtained treatment. This may take some time depending upon the providers' responsiveness. There will likely be a lengthy telephone interview with a caseworker, and in the case of a claimed mental disability, there will likely will also be a psychological examination by an independent practitioner to help determine the issue of disability. Keep in mind that the main determinant to being awarded SSDI is a finding of inability to work at all in any area for which you are suited by knowledge, training, or experience. Therefore, the medical/psychological/employment records will have to support that contention. Unsupported allegations that you make will not, in and of themselves, be enough. If you are awarded SSDI, Social Security may conduct periodic reviews of your condition to determine if you continue to meet the requirements of entitlement.
The problem that many people see is that as the Baby Boom generation retires, social security costs are going to become so high that the system may not be adequately funded by… the payments made by the existing work force.
If you are receiving Social Security Disability and reach full retirement age, the full amount of your benefits will be transferred from SSDI to Social Security Retirement. If… you are receiving Supplemental Security Income and are over the age of 62, you may be able to receive Social Security Retirement benefits in addition to your SSI if you have worked and paid into Social Security long enough to be eligible.
They are both the same thing SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS and you only get one check for your SSB amount each month that you qualify for.
Once you reach retirement age, your Social Security Disability benefits convert to regular retirement benefits, payable at the same rate. You cannot collect an additional amou…nt due to disability. It is possible that you could qualify for the SSI supplemental security income, which is based on disability and income, in addition to your month Social Security benefit, but this is a different program and is not administered by the SSA. The amount of SSI paid is adjusted monthly based on what the person was able to earn in that month.

Currently, the social security retirement age is 65. However, you can get the funds out earlier if you were willing to receive less in the way of a benefit. You can check ou…t some great calculators on the Related Link below that will show you the impact of taking the distribution early. Check out the attached link.
It is my understanding that if you & your spouse are living. You can. But! If your spouse is dead. Then SSI let's you decide which check you want to draw from you cannot have… both when one is gone.
Socialization leads to apathy. Apathy in a majority of people leads to less production and a weakening economy. A weakening economy will result in the need for more social…ization
Social Security is benefits provided under the Social Security Act (1935), financed by the Social Security Tax authorized by the Federal Insurance Contributors Act (FICA) …and administered by the Social Security Administration.
