At a symposium on Capitol Hill co-sponsored by the Brookings Institution and the Secretary’s Innovation Group, leading experts discussed the rise in SSDI enrollment and debated the drivers of that increase. EPPC senior fellow Henry Olsen moderated a panel on the current federal disability growth trajectory and provided opening remarks for the panel discussing proposals for reform.
