Social Security and the Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy are seeking public input for Information on Potential Stay-at-Work/Return-to-Work Demonstration Projects. Through this research, we hope to identify effective strategies for supporting workers who want and are able to keep working while living with a disability.
Specifically, we are asking for recommendations on the early intervention strategies to be tested (to promote labor force attachment, coordinate employment and health services, and support injured and ill workers in returning to and remaining at work) and on the design of a potential demonstration.
This notice builds on Social Security’s “Request for Information on Strategies for Improving Work Outcomes for Individuals with Musculoskeletal Disabilities” last year, for which many of you submitted comments. We appreciate your input and encourage all interested parties to respond to the current notice.
Please read the Federal Register notice to learn more. The notice includes the questions we want help with answering and instructions for submitting your comments by Internet, fax, or mail. It also provides contact details for the Department of Labor in case you need further information. Comments are due no later than October 30, 2017. We also encourage you to share this notice with others who may be interested.
As always, thank you for helping us secure today and tomorrow through your commitment to the people we serve!
