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, of the evaluation of the Ticket to Work program, a study of  state Medicaid Buy-in programs, design of a payroll tax incentive that would encourage employers to hire and retain people with disabilities who are current or past participants in DI, SSI, or veterans’ compensation programs, and a study to help state welfare programs deal with challenges created by the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program.
