Authored By: Disability Rights Texas -- Main Office
Employment has long been recognized as a key to unlocking doors to personal growth, enhancing self-esteem, and providing a more fulfilling life. Yet, persons with disabilities continue to represent an underutilized segment of the work force. According to Department of Labor statistics, only about 29% of persons with disabilities between the ages of 16 to 64 are working full or part time. The Protection and Advocacy for Beneficiaries of Social Security (PABSS) program is now available to assist beneficiaries in the removal of barriers to work.
