Spokane County Transfer Payments updated through 2009

Transfer payments now account for nearly 22% of all personal income in Spokane County (as of 2009). Transfer payments represent payments received without a corresponding contemporary return of a service or product. This includes primarily government retirement and medical benefits, disability benefits, unemployment benefits and other benefits programs. This is also why the Federal government is broke.
