Social Security Disability Enrollment Rising Due To Demographic Trends, Not Obama ‘Slavery’ Plot: CBO

The study, by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, found that the biggest jumps in the disabled population came from aging Baby Boomers. From 1996 through 2009 — “the approximate period during which the baby-boom generation entered their 50s — the share of disabled worker benefits awarded to older workers (age 45 and older) rose from 67 percent to 76 percent,” the report said.

Meanwhile, the share of benefits going to younger workers — between the ages of 25 to 44 — fell from 31 percent to 22 percent.

“Baby boomers’ aging would have boosted enrollment in the DI program even if no other factors had changed,” the report said.
