Why do the disabled have to be so poor?

Many people with disabilities rely on the Social Security System to help them live healthy, independent lives. This income and related services help us become productive citizens. The problem is that social security income and asset limits discourage people with disabilities from working full time. This 90 second PSA explains the problem and poses questions to ask political candidates to solve this problem.

Email Your Candidates and ask them the following questions.

  • Do your support the expansion of the ABLE Act to include people who become disabled after the age of 26?

  • Would you support increasing the SSI thresholds to the level of minimum wage at a full time job?

  • What is your stand on increased funding for DVR so they can provide greater support to people with disabilities who want to work?

We shouldn’t have to be poor to get the essential services we need.
