This is a sad example of what happens when State Law runs smack into the brick wall of Federal bureaucracy.

According to the statistics from the Social Security Administration (SSA), your odds of avoiding a disability actually get worse as you get older. Most people believe their odds improve, but one of the glaring Myths about Disabilities is that most are caused by injuries. This simply isn’t true.
