There should be an re-evaluation of all disable adults under 65 years old.

There are many 'able' adults who got disability years ago but whose ailment has been cured, improved or minimized however, no one has ever gone back to re-evaluate them so they continue to collect disability. There needs to be a healthcare team from the govenment, with specific standards, who evaluates people based on what they CAN do. They need to work with an employment agency and find jobs that these people can do. Perhaps a desk job, or work 2-3 days a week. In reality, some of these people already have 'under the table jobs'. The majority of disable adults under 65 should be re-evaluated atleast annually to ensure they still qualify for the benefits they receive.

        People that receive SSDI are re-evaluated periodically according to their disability. The Medicare buy-in program and the Drugs for Maine's Elderly program has lowered the income eligibility for these programs, cutting thousands of elderly and disabled citizens from these and other programs including food supplements (SNAP).
