(Earnings, Disability Incidence, & Mortality Are Key Factors)
Differences by race in the relationship between taxes paid and benefits received under Social Security are due mainly to differences in lifetime earnings, the incidence of disability, and mortality among the groups. In the aggregate, blacks and Hispanics have higher disability rates and lower lifetime earnings, thus as a group tend to receive greater benefits relative to taxes than whites.
