SOURCE: Social Security Administration, Annual Award and Termination Transaction file, 100 percent data.
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.
