Reconciling Findings on the Employment Effect of Disability Insurance

John Bound, Stephan Lindner and Timothy Waldmann

Mathematica Policy Research Reports from Mathematica Policy Research

Abstract: Over the last 25 years, the Social Security Disability Insurance Program (DI) has grown dramatically. During the same period, employment rates for men with work limitations showed substantial declines in both absolute and relative terms. While the timing of these trends suggests that the expansion of DI was a major contributor to employment decline among this group, raising questions about the targeting of disability benefits, studies using denied applicants suggest a more modest role of the DI expansion.
