Vocational Rehabilitation on the Road to Social Security Disability: Longitudinal Statistics from Matched Administrative Data
AbstractThis study describes the extent to which vocational rehabilitation (VR) applicants receive Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits before or after VR application. SSD entry varies with VR applicant characteristics; those with relatively high SSD entry include non-Hispanic whites, those not employed at application, those with more than a high school education, and especially those already receiving Supplemental Security Income but not SSD. There is also wide variation in SSD entry across states, with some states having entry percentages twice as high as others.
