"Actually, as far as I am aware disability examiners do not receive, and have never received, bonuses. For one thing, they are state employees not federal and the states are too cheap to ever pay a bonus to low level employees who make less than 30k a year.
Federal social security administration employees are eligible for bonuses, though, and this practice should be stopped. But my reasoning may not be the same as yours. From what I have observed, since I know quite a few feds, the practice of awarding bonuses, in its current form, means that the hardest working, most competent employees do not receive the biggest bonuses as rewards for their hard work and personal initiative. Instead, the biggest bonuses tend to go to employees who have been there the longest...regardless of how incompetent they are.
And, of course, the worst part is that managers receive bonuses. MANAGEMENT SHOULD NEVER RECEIVE BONUSES IN A FEDERAL AGENCY. It encourages them to direct the efforts of the offices they manage for one goal: to increase the size of their annual bonus. It should be done away with, no question about it.
