The program for the disability benefits for those federal workers is said to be wasteful and abused. This is because it was said that a lot of healthy federal workers are feeding off of the benefits when they have no need too. A lot of them are leading healthy, happy lives and doing things – such as running marathons that you wouldn’t do if you had an actual disability. They are traveling the world, scuba diving, skiing in the snow, and buying boats while collecting over $100,000 annually in disability payments. A lot of the workers make more on disability payments then if they were to actually work at their jobs. A lot of people are also using the disability payments as retirement payments instead. Most of the recipients are 66 or older,, six of them are over 100 years of age which is well past the age of retirement.
