Today I would like to discuss how disability systems in the private sector and other countries encourage and facilitate return to work in three key areas: (1) the eligibility assessment process, (2) work incentives, and (3) staffing practices. I will describe these three elements for U.S. private sector disability insurers and for other countries’ social insurance systems and compare the practices of both with those of the DI program. We are comparing these practices with those of the DI program because the work experience of the DI population is most comparable to that of employees covered under private disability insurance. However, many of the comparisons discussed would be applicable as well to SSA’s other disability program, Supplemental Security Income (SSI). (Author)
