Most Baby Boomers Overestimate Breadth and Depth of Public Safety Net for Disabled Workers
Date:5/5/2008

WASHINGTON, May 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Most baby boomers overestimate the breadth and depth of the public safety net available for workers who suffer a disability, according to a new survey conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP).

More than a third of baby boomers believe a worker is qualified if he or she can work no more than twenty hours a week, and one-in-four say they do not know what the qualifications are. In reality, workers are only eligible for SSDI benefits if they are unable to do any work for which they would earn $1,000 or more per month.

Only one-in-five baby boomers correctly estimated the average monthly SSDI benefit for a disabled worker to be about $1,000 a month. Eighteen percent overestimated the benefit and a significant number of baby boomers (43 percent) said they did not know how much the average monthly SSDI benefit was.

While a majority of baby boomers (60 percent) accurately stated that job-related illnesses and injuries are qualifications for Workers' Compensat
