That is a very complex question. You would get different responses from different attorneys. One is because a lot of people want to get something for nothing. If they can get a check and just stay home and do nothing by convincing someone that they’re disabled, there’s a certain percentage of the population that would be content to do that.
There is also, and it’s very true, that the Social Security may go bankrupt at some period of time. Therefore, there’s been a directive from high up going down to try to find fewer and fewer cases being compensable. It’s a money-saving device. Now Social Security would probably deny that, but I believe empirically, based on experience, that certainly that’s a factor. Nationally, approximately one-third of initial applications are approved. Nationally, approximately 45 to 50 of cases that go in front of the judge are approved.
