Abstract

Interviews of 155 general assistance recipientsaged50through 64 were conducted in Maryland during 1983. Findings suggest that Many have long-term disabling conditions and cannot reasonably be expected to return to paid work. Implications, if substantiated by other studies, are that case advocacy on their Behalf may increase the likelihood of receipt of federal disability benefits and that consideration should be given to liberalizing Supplemental Security Income disability criteria.
