Social Security disability cases time lag: Ohio is worst

The worst states to live in if you're an SSDI applicant?
  1. Ohio, 590.8 days
  2. Michigan, 575.7
  3. Minnesota, 566.0
  4. Wisconsin, 562.6
  5. Indiana, 537.4
Overall, one out of every 25 Americans is collecting Social Security Disability Insurance. The average monthly total per person is $1,064.

In other words, the average payment is less than minimum wage.  It's readily acknowledged that it's impossible to live on minimum wage, so don't think SSDI recipients are living a luxurious life on your tax dollars.
