Income Support for Children with Disabilities: Moving Towards Reforms That Work

12:00 p.m. – 1:15 p.m.
Center for American Progress
1333 H St. NW, 10th Floor
Washington, DC, 20005

This year the nation celebrates the 40th Anniversary of Supplemental Security Income program, which provides income support to people with disabilities, including 1.3 million children. For families, the program is a lifesaver that allows for greater economic security as they provide family-centered care for their children. Despite its tremendous value, conservatives are targeting the program for reforms, some of which mirror what was done to programs like TANF. It is clear that this isn’t the way to go. This panel discussed the challenges experienced by the families of children with disabilities, attacks on the SSI program, a blueprint for reform, and connections between SSI policy debates and those of other safety net programs. Panelists included Dennis Hogan, professor at Brown University and author of Family Consequences of Children’s Disabilities; Susan Parish, director of the Lurie Institute for Disability Policy at Brandeis University; LaDonna Pavetti, vice president for Family Income Support Policy, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities; and Rebecca Vallas, attorney, Community Legal Services of Philadelphia. Shawn Fremstad of the Center for Economic Policy and Research moderated. A video of the event is available below or after the jump.

After Austerity

9:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Congress House
23-28 Great Russell St
London WC1B 3LW, UK

With the U.K. facing a decade of economic stagnation, real change is needed to secure jobs and living standards for the future. Growth is the only long-term solution to getting public finances back in shape, but where will it come from? With another generation scarred by youth unemployment, and job losses in public and private sectors, how can we create more as well as better jobs? A growing gap between the rich and the rest helped cause the crash, but what can we do about it? As tackling climate change is increasingly presented as a barrier to growth, can a low carbon economy be part of the solution? CEPR Co-Director Dean Baker served as the keynote speaker at an event discussing these issues. CEPR Senior Research Associate Ha-Joon Chang also spoke at the event.
