Strengthening Work Incentives and Supports

Disability benefits, cash assistance, social insurance and other government programs can improve the well-being of people who face challenges to earning enough to support themselves and their families. Our research and technical assistance focus on removing program disincentives to work and identifying effective employment strategies for participants. That’s why, for example, we’re helping the U.S. Department of Labor learn which interventions can most effectively keep workers with disabilities at their jobs or help them return to the workforce.
