Almost half of all Americans live in a household where at least one member received government benefits in the first quarter of 2011, according to a new report.

Data from the Census Bureau revealed that 49.1 per cent of the population live in a household which gets at least one kind of government benefit with many likely to receive more than one.

The figure marks a steep rise in the amount of people claiming benefits, in the early 1980s only 30 per cent of the population were in a household that got government hand-outs, reported the Wall Street Journal.

The increase in households where at least one person claims food stamps, receives unemployment benefits or where someone is enrolled in Medicaid is largely a result of the recession which began in late 2008 and carried on into 2010.

The data showed that 15 per cent of people lived in a household that received food stamps, 26 per cent had someone enrolled in Medicaid and 2 per cent had a member receiving unemployment benefits in the first quarter of last year.

It was also found that 16 per cent of the population lives in a household where at least one member receives social security benefits.

As well as more households depending on government benefits, more families are living together in multi generational households to save money, according to the Wall Street Journal’s report.

And the problem is set to get worse as millions of baby boomers retire – putting further strains on the already overburdened revenue stream.

The worrying leap in benefits payments will make the scheduled government spending cuts even harder.
Indeed, the Congressional Budget Office said on Tuesday that the combination of tax increases and spending cuts scheduled for January 2013 will send the country back into recession.

The government reported last month that the trust funds that support Social Security will run dry in 2033, three years earlier than previously projected.

More than 56million retirees, disabled workers, spouses and children receive Social Security. The average retirement benefit is ,232 a month; the average monthly benefit for disabled workers is ,111.

About 50million people are covered by Medicare, the medical insurance programme for older Americans.

The food stamp program was used by 43.6 million people in November 2010. Before the recession, the program was serving 26 million.

Bertha Parker was missing for at least 14 years before anyone — other than her son — noticed. Her son, James T. Parker, was sentenced Thursday to four years in federal prison for spending more than 0,000 worth of her Social Security checks.

In January 2007, the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office got complaints from a local homeowner’s association about James Parker, including questions about the whereabouts of his mother. Deputies interviewed Parker and re-opened a cold case about unidentified human remains that were discovered in the Indian River Lagoon near Grant in 1992.

The county medical examiner determined that the remains, which appeared to have been cut into pieces, were likely those of an older woman, according to a release from the Department of Justice. It was ruled a homicide, but with no means to identify the remains, the case was closed less than two months later.

Once reopened in 2007, Parker volunteered a sample of his DNA, according to Cmdr. Doug Waller of the sheriff’s office, and tests showed that the remains were 99.9 percent likely to be Parker’s mother.

Waller said that Parker revealed in interviews with the sheriff’s office that his 87-year-old mother died of natural causes and that he disposed of her body.

“There was very little evidence discovered,” Waller said, going on to say that Parker is considered a suspect in the homicide, but he has not been charged.

“At this point in the investigation, we have to be able to determine how she died and where she died,” Waller said. “And that investigation is still ongoing.”

Parker told deputies that he collected his mother’s monthly Social Security checks since her disappearance in 1992 through a joint Wachovia Bank account.

The sheriff’s office turned over evidence to the Social Security Administration, which investigated Parker for Social Security fraud. Parker pleaded guilty to the indictment on March 7 this year and was ordered to pay 8,992.80 in restitution.

Fernando Dominicis, who has worked as a fraud agent for the sheriff’s office for 24 years, said he feels it’s gotten easier for people to commit acts of fraud. “Most agencies don’t have the manpower to attack that particularly,” he said.

He couldn’t give an exact dollar figure, but said Social Security fraud in Brevard is a serious concern.

“If your mother passes away, and you don’t notify anybody, the checks keep coming,” Dominicis said.
