The Social Security Disability Insurance program was established in 1956. This selected bibliography highlights the research and statistical work that the Social Security Administration (SSA) has done on the subject of disability. It focuses on articles that have appeared in the Social Security Bulletin since 1956 and earlier Bulletin articles about events leading up to the program's establishment. The bibliography also includes ORES Working Papers and disability-related research done by the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College and the Michigan Retirement Research Center at the University of Michigan funded through grants from SSA.
The bibliography was compiled by John R. Kearney, Concepcion McNeace, Karen Morris, L. Scott Muller, Anthony Nathe, Nicole Pascua, and Karyn Tucker. All are with the Office of Research, Evaluation, and Statistics, Office of Policy, Social Security Administration.
