Unemployment rates are low, but not for everyone. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, people with disabilities are twice as likely to be unemployed compared to the general population. Only 30 percent of people 16-64 with disabilities are employed.
Many rely on Social Security disability for financial assistance, but it’s a complex process. Social Security Administration takes approximately 26 weeks to review applications. Seventy percent of applications are denied. In 2017, over a million appeals were backlogged.
