Employment and Income Support

Employment issues are the focus of policy research on working-age adults with disabilities but are intertwined with health care, accommodation, parenting, and other issues. Our work in this area includes studies on the use of state vocational rehabilitation services, evaluations of the Ticket to Work program and other Social Security Administration initiatives to promote employment, and studies of how access to health insurance affects employment and program participation.
