The top five states for Social Security beneficiaries

With the depletion of the Social Security disability fund looming, Social Security disability recipients in these five states may want to discover other means of getting by.

According to a recent study, the five states with the highest percentage of their population receiving Social Security benefits are Maine, Alabama, Arkansas, Vermont, and West Virginia – states where more residents older than the national average reside.

To specify, 25.1% of West Virginians depend on Social Security benefits while over 22% of Alabama’s and Arkansas’s population live on Social Security benefits. Around 24.5% of Maine residents are Social Security recipients while 22.4% Vermont locals are beneficiaries of Social Security.

The number of Social Security beneficiaries in these states is significantly higher than the national average of 18.5%.
