  • Life With An Intellectual Disability

    Living with an intellectual disability can be a struggle due to an inability to learn or meet criteria for advancement in school settings. This is just one reason why many of the the two percent of Americans afflicted with intellectual disabilities depend on Social Security Disability benefits and Supplemental Security Income to make ends meet.

    Many people with intellectual disabilities have a desire to enter the workforce, but it can be hard to find jobs. However, this may soon change if one organization has anything to do with it.

    “I’m In To Hire” Program

    The Best Buddies “I’m In To Hire” program challenges employers across the United States to  hire local citizens with intellectual disabilities. The organization adds that it is a win-win for those involved, considering the disabled are able to earn living wages—as much as $40,000 a year—while companies get dedicated, hard working employees. Th program also significantly reduces the amount of money needed to fund disability programs.

    So far, more than 100,000 employers have pledged to participate in the program. Best Buddies hopes to reach a goal of getting one million disabled individuals employed within the next decade.

    Get Involved

    At Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin, our Social Security Disability lawyers recognize the sense of pride and accomplishment that can go into a hard day’s work. That’s why we encourage employers to consider hiring one of the 85 percent of individuals with an intellectual disability who are without a job. If you aren’t an employer, we encourage you to pledge your support to the cause by signing up to raise awareness about the program.
