Why do they make it so hard to get Social Security Disability or even Social Security itself? Everyone has worked and paid into it for years and when you need it, they give you so much trouble.

It's always easier to give money to the government, than to get it.

And since Congress doesn't use the Social Security system - they really have no motivation to make it more "user friendly".

Because so many people have misused it. Same thing here in Canada. You have to jump through all the hoops to prove that you really need it and you really deserve it. Makes it hard for those who really need it to get it.

I actually became disabled (unlike  those thousands welfare bums who are just lazy) and I had no trouble getting on disability. But than again, things might be totally different in Canada.

My goal for the future is to get better and look into getting a part time job.. from ages of 15 to 20.. I had 3 paper routs all at once. When I turned 18 I worked part time at a thrift store (4, 5 hour shifts).
