Workers' Compensation & Disability

The threat of disability is one of the major reasons for our social insurance programs.

The Upjohn Institute maintains an active interest in state and provincial workers’ compensation programs for those disabled by a work-related cause. Researchers also study federal disability compensation programs (SSDI and SSI) for those disabled by more general causes. Both types of programs give rise to questions about benefit adequacy, funding requirements, and equity issues.
