Fewer Disabled Workers In Federal Civilian Jobs

This article from the Washington Post is about the declining percentage of disabled workers among the federal workforce (currently less than one percent). The only snippet that really drew my eye is: "Experts are not sure what accounts for the falling federal numbers. Some suspect that more disabled employees are retiring as part of the aging of the federal workforce."

Nothing new there, of course. The U.S. workforce, in general, is aging, so federal agencies, including the social security administration, will be facing record retirements in coming years.

The strange thing about SSA's approach to this burgeoning issue, however, is that...they don't seem to be planning to deal with it at all.
