The McCrery-Pomeroy SSDI Solutions Initiative is a project dedicated to identifying practical policy changes to improve the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program and other services to people with disabilities. The SSDI Solutions Initiative issued a call for papers to solicit ideas in a number of areas related to the program, which culminated in a conference where authors presented their papers to discussants and attendees. This was followed up with the publication of SSDI Solutions: Ideas to Strengthen the Social Security Disability Insurance Program. These solutions can help spur a debate on how to ensure the SSDI program best serves workers with disabilities, those who pay into the program, and the economy more broadly.
The SSDI Solutions Initiative is co-chaired by former Congressmen Earl Pomeroy (D-ND) and Jim McCrery (R-LA), who will be supported by a staff and Advisory Council of experts. It is a project of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget.
