Alabama 2nd Highest State Receiving Disability
Only West Virginia has more residents getting assistance.
In Alabama,more than 237,000 people draw disability payments.
That’s more than 6 % of the population. That’s according to social security data.
Arkansas, Kentucky and Missisippi round out the top five.
Economists say that could be bad news when it comes to attracting high-growth buisness because they tend to avoid areas with large numbers of disabled people.
