Giovanni Mastrobuoni, director of research students in the economics department at the University of Essex in Colchester, England says the poverty rate among people 65 years and older all over the world has increased in recent years.
Social Security Administration acting commissioner, Carolyn Colvin, has noted that some of the reason why more people in the United States need Social Security disability and retirement benefits is because of demographic changes brought on by the Industrial Revolution.

Some Democrats are of the opinion that they want to put in place measures which will allow disabled workers to return to the workforce. This is one of the platforms of Vermont Senator and 2016 Democratic candidate for the Presidential elections, Bernie Sanders.
