This chapter examines the extent to which the evolution of disability insurance utilization can be explained by changes in the population health status and by changes in eligibility rules. Three main research questions are addressed. First, is there a relationship between disability insurance utilization and the development of population health status in recent decades? Second, did the changes in eligibility rules for older workers affect disability insurance utilization? And third, did the changes in eligibility rules for older workers affect labor market outcomes such as employment and labor-force participation, or were they “crowded out” by the utilization of other income security programs?

Keywords:   disability insurance utilization, population health status, insurance eligibility, older workers, employment, labor force participation
