Return-to-Work Outcomes Among Social Security Disability Insurance Program Beneficiaries
AbstractThis report follows a sample of working-age Social Security Disability Insurance program beneficiaries for five years after their first benefit award to learn how certain factors help or hinder achieving four important milestones: (1) first enrollment for employment services provided by a state vocational rehabilitation agency or employment network, (2) start of trial work period, (3) completion of trial work period, and (4) suspension or termination of benefits because of work. Younger beneficiaries are more likely than older beneficiaries to achieve the milestones, and the likelihood of achieving them varies substantially across impairment types. Other factors, including state of residence and month of award, also play an important role.
