Better Disability Access Has Not Improved Success Rates For SSD Claims

This week marks the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This groundbreaking law grew out of the civil rights movement of the 1960s, but its actual implementation did not take place until 1990. There had been earlier efforts: The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 prohibited discrimination against recipients of federal financial assistance on the basis of disability. However, it was not comprehensive. For example, it did not help people avoid disability discrimination by employers or improve public accommodations in the private sector. The ADA corrected this when it was enacted in 1990.
