Take The Disability Quiz: Part Two

June 18, 2014

Last week, I posed Part 1 of the Disability Quiz from the Social Security Website.  Part 2 is below.  I got 4/4 correct again, but I’m going to give you a hint on these.  They are basically a form of marketing–SSA is telling you with each question how awesome the program is, how cheap it is to administer and how much it does for Americans by keeping them out of poverty.  With that in mind, I think you can get four out of four correct as well.


5. For every dollar paid in Social Security taxes, how much does the agency spend to administer the program (cost of running the agency)?

A. 20 cents
B. 10 cents
C. 1 cent
6. A yearly income of $11,490 or less puts you in the poverty category according to U.S. guidelines. What is the average yearly amount of Social Security disability benefits for an individual?

A. $10,752
B. $13,752
C. $17,752
7. In 2012, how much money did our aggressive program to prevent disability fraud save the Social Security Administration?

A. $3 million
B. $340 million
C. $34 million
8. Only 31 percent of people have private sector long-term disability insurance. What percent of workers does Social Security Disability Insurance cover?

A. 30%
B. 50%
C. 90%

6.  B
