Disability Rights

Sixty-one million adults in the United States have at least one physical, intellectual, developmental, psychiatric, or other disability. This population will increase as COVID-19 causes varied disabling health conditions. Many individuals with disabilities are economically insecure, living in poverty or with very low-incomes, while struggling to pay disability-related expenses. A member of the Consortium of Constituents with Disabilities, NCLC works to remove barriers and combat abusive financial practices to increase economic opportunity for consumers with disabilities.
