Respond by Day 6 to at least two colleagues by explaining a strategy social workers might use to advocate for fair benefits within this program for the populations your colleagues selected.Support your response with specific references to the resources. Be sure to provide full APA citations for your references.First Colleague’s PostPost a brief description of the population you selected:I selected the homelessness population. Homelessness is anyone who lacks secure and stable shelter, food and income. They live on the streets, emergency shelters, transitional homes and hospitals. Then, explain how that population might be disenfranchised by the Social Security program based on research, statistics, or policy analysis:To qualify for social security retirement benefits: one would need 40 work credits which is a total of 10 years including social security taxes. (U.S. Social Security Administration, 2013) Otherwise you wouldnt be eligible for retirement benefits. Also, you must be a permanent resident or U.S. citizen to be eligible for social security benefits. (U.S. Social Security Administration, 2013) Under disability benefits: It would all depend when you were considered disable, but you would need some work credit to be eligible for disability benefits depending on your age. Based on these finding, homeless people would be disenfranchised by the social security program because they would most likely not have enough work credits to receive the benefits. California had an estimated 129,972 experiencing homelessness on any given day. (United States Interagency Council on Homelessness, 2018) That is a big number to think about considering those individuals are potentially at risk and disenfranchised by the social security programs. Homeless people are more unlikely to maintain or secure a stable job and would be at greater risk on losing those benefits. (U.S. Social Security Administration, 2013) If the homeless is undocumented that would make the number even higher.Reference:Second Colleague’s PostI have chosen is the partially permanent disabled population. This population of individuals have limited physical disabilities that prevent them from full range of motion and use of hands, feet, arms, legs etc., They have been identified as having the loss of capacity to ear living wages due to the disability (Barth, 2003). Social Security (SSI) offers financial and medical benefits to individuals who are permanently partially disabled. However, they are limited to the amount of money they are able to make in order to receive these benefits or they will be cut off (Ailshire, 2004). With the combination of benefits the state gives them and the amount they are able to make on their own through employment is still below or right at what is considered the poverty line (Ailshire, 2004). There are cases where individuals would do better by obtaining a full time traditional position but if they do that and make too much money they will be cut off of any benefits from the state and many of them desperately need the medical coverage so, they live in impoverished conditions so that they can continue to receive the medical care then need (Ailshire, 2004).BibliographyAilshire, J.
