This line graph shows SSA beneficiaries as a percentage of all SVRA case closures from FY 1997 to 2003. For states in each TTW Phase, this percentage increased steadily over the seven years shown.


Figure VI.2: SSA Claims Allowed and SSA Payments to SVRAs Under the Traditional Payment Program, by Year

Figure 6.2 -- Please see caption below.

Source: Social Security Administration 2004.

This graph shows both the number of SVRA cases for which SSA made a payment and the total value of those payments for each year from 1983 to 2004. Both claims allowed and total reimbursement costs generally rose until 2002 when both cases for which payments were made and the dollar value of payments dropped by a third (from $120 million in 2002 to $80 million in 2003-2004.


Figure VI.3: Total SSA Payments to SVRAs and ENs

Figure 6.3 -- Please see caption below.

Source: MPR tabulations of SSA administrative data.

This bar graph shows total SSA payments to SVRAs and ENs from FY 1999 to FY 2004. Payments to ENs made up a barely noticeably portion of the total payments which were approximately $80 million in 2003 and 2004.


Figure VI.4: Percentage of Competitively Employed SSA Cases Vs. Non-SSA Cases FY 1997-2003

Figure 6.4 -- Please see caption below.

Source: RSA 911 (Case Service Reports) Public Use File.

This graph has two lines that indicate the percentage of cases that SVRAs close to competitive employment among SSA beneficiaries and among other SVRA participants. The line showing the rate of competitive employment for non-SSA cases is consistently higher than the line for SSA cases, typically be at least 5 percentage points. The percentage of SSA cases closed to competitive employment peaked in 2000 and fells sharply afterwards, while the percentage for non-SSA cases remained relatively constant.
