About the Event
Of the roughly 17.5 million working-age people in the United States living with a disability, nearly 70 percent receive benefits through the Social Security Administration’s disability programs. About 12 percent of all federal spending goes to supporting this population—$357 billion in 2008—and this number continues to increase. But the experience of people within the disability support system is often characterized by fragmented services and poor health and economic outcomes.
The Disability Research Consortium (DRC), a collaborative effort of the Social Security Administration (SSA), Mathematica’s Center for Studying Disability Policy, and the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), is building the evidence base necessary not only to improve the national disability support system and the lives of people with disabilities, but also to reduce government costs in the long term.
Join us for a two-day conference and webinar highlighting the latest DRC research findings and their implications for the future of disability policies and programs at Mathematica's Washington, DC, office.
