As reports suggest, the SSDI fund is expected to be exhausted by late 2016 and that is a concern for many SSD benefits recipients and applicant. However, along with that, another concern that many applicants and recipients in New Jersey may have is whether other Americans who do not receive SSD benefits are biased against them because of their disability and the idea that they receive government benefits.
