Abstract

Current research shows that for Americans today there is a high probability that both aging and disability will be facts of their personal lives. The question of how we, as a society, will accommodate to these facts is posed in the introduction to this article. It is asserted that answers to this question could be positively affected by a coalition of the aging and disability communities. The first section of the paper. “Strategies for a Coalition,” offers approaches for bringing together aging and disability groups to affect change in general. The second section focuses on the specific issue of Social Security Disability Insurance and work incentives. It offers some options for change upon which a coalition of aging and disability groups could concentrate its efforts.
