For both 1982 and 1991, the probability that the families of both groups of men (disabled and matched nondisabled) are poor or near poor is positively their earnings potential had been taken as the average of their covered earnings, the average income of their families would have been $13,245, or 58 percent of their nondisability income. Both the maximum and average values are based on the actual prior earnings of disabled persons receiving SSDI benefits and hence reflect the likely period of deteriorating health and work capacity experienced by many SSDI recipients prior to receiving benefits (see Livermore, 1995).

S. have played an important role in sustaining the economic status of families of disabled men. Nevertheless, the families of young men with disabilities remain a disadvantaged group, relative to their nondisabled counterparts and to older disabled men. Men who enter the SSDI rolls early in life cease work earlier; hence the gains that come with longer working careers are not reflected in their later Social Security (SSDI) benefits. Over time their relative economic position remains well below that of their nondisabled peers and of men who first receive SSDI at a later age.

Conversely, if all the disabled men were older (62-65 in 1982) when they first received SSDI benefits, the probability (relative to the omitted prime-age category) of being poor or near poor would be reduced by onethird. The pattern among the nondisabled is quite different. 5 percent for the nondisabled. S. disabled men 35 probability of being poor or near poor, and being older (62-65 in 1982) is associated with a higher probability of being poor or near poor (in contrast to a lower probability for the disabled) relative to the prime-age group.
