SOURCE: Social Security Administration, Disabled Beneficiaries and Dependents Master Beneficiary Record file, 100 percent data.
NOTES: The average monthly benefit includes secondary benefit amounts for some beneficiaries who are dually entitled. This results in the
average monthly benefit being larger than the average PIA for some age groups.
PIA = primary insurance amount; FRA = full retirement age.

NOTES: Data exclude expedited reinstatement cases.
Effective 2001, the Social Security Administration initiated a special review of 130,000 Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipients who are
potentially eligible for Social Security disability benefits because of earnings while receiving SSI. Many of these claims awarded since 2001 were
for individuals under the age of 35 who were diagnosed with a mental disorder.

SOURCES: Social Security Administration. For years before 2000, Annual Statistical Supplement to the Social Security Bulletin, based on the Master Beneficiary Record, various sampling rates; from 2000 to 2001, Annual Award and Termination Transaction file, 1 percent
sample; data after 2001 are 100 percent data.
NOTES: Data exclude closed period awards in 2002 and 2003 and expedited reinstatement cases since 2002.
Data from 1964 to 1966 are not available. Before 1995, diagnostic data for cases awarded at the appeals levels were estimated on the basis of the diagnosis of cases allowed at the initial disability determination level.
Effective 2001, the Social Security Administration initiated a special review of 130,000 Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipients who are potentially eligible for Social Security disability benefits because of earnings while receiving SSI. Many of these claims awarded
since 2001 were for individuals under the age of 35 who were diagnosed with a mental disorder.
-- = not available.
a. AIDS and HIV records are counted in "Infectious and parasitic diseases." Before 1990, they were included in "Other."
b. Mental retardation was not identified separately before 1995.
c. Beginning with 2002, several ill-defined impairment codes were reclassified and added to "Unknown."
d. Data not shown to avoid disclosure of information for particular individuals.
e. Less than 0.05 percent.

SOURCES: Social Security Administration. For years before 2000, Annual Statistical Supplement to the Social Security Bulletin, based on the Master Beneficiary Record, various sampling rates; from 2000 to 2001, Annual Award and Termination Transaction file, 1 percent
sample; data after 2001 are 100 percent data.
NOTES: Data exclude closed period awards in 2002 and 2003 and expedited reinstatement cases since 2002.
Before 1995, diagnostic data for cases awarded at the appeals levels were estimated on the basis of the diagnosis of cases allowed at the initial disability determination level.
Effective 2001, the Social Security Administration initiated a special review of 130,000 Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipients who are potentially eligible for Social Security disability benefits because of earnings while receiving SSI. Many of these claims awarded
since 2001 were for individuals under the age of 35 who were diagnosed with a mental disorder.
-- = not available.
a. AIDS and HIV records are counted in "Infectious and parasitic diseases." Before 1990, they were included in "Other."

c. Beginning with 2002, several ill-defined impairment codes were reclassified and added to "Unknown."
d. Data not shown to avoid disclosure of information for particular individuals.

NOTES: Data for the initial and reconsideration levels are current through June 2006. Data for the hearing level or above are current through
August 2006.
Because a number of applications remain pending for more recent years, the award and allowance rates will change over time. Cases can be
pending at the initial or appellate levels and can include either medical or technical issues.
Data include decisions for Social Security–only applications and applications for both Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI);
they do not include SSI-only applications.
Data from 1992 to 1998 are available for disabled workers only.
a. Applications were denied for nonmedical reasons; therefore no decision was made on severity of impairment.
b. Rate determined by dividing awards by all applications minus pending claims for that year.
c. Rate determined by dividing medical allowances by all medical decisions for that year.
d. Applications were denied for nonmedical reasons after a decision was made that the applicant did not meet the medical severity criteria for
disability benefits.
e. Applications were denied for nonmedical reasons after a decision was made that the applicant met the medical severity criteria for disability
benefits.
