Among the younger nondisabled, the percentage married increased (with a consequent increase in the share of total family income contributed by the spouse), and, as some among this group retired, earnings fell as a percentage of family income and the share of family income accounted for by Social Security rose. The net effect on the relative economic status of the younger disabled was small. Although some convergence in percentage poor between the two groups is observed, mean income and income-to-needs ratio for this younger disabled group remained well below one-half of the mean level for the nondisabled.

Disabled men 37 each SSOI recipient, we compare the actual (post-Social Security) poverty rate (row iv) to these simulated poverty rates, which comparisons provide a measure of the extent to which Social Security benefits enable the population of disabled SSOI recipients who would be poor in the absence of Social Security benefits to escape poverty (row v). Table 5 presents these calculations for both the younger and older groups of disabled men. In 1982, shortly after these men first received SSOI benefits, the pre-Social Security poverty rate stood at about 66 percent for the younger group and 54 percent for the older group.

These patterns are accounted for by a) the rapid decrease in the earnings of the older cohort of men without disabilities as they and their spouses retired and withdrew from the labor force, substituting a lower level of transfer (largely, Social Security retirement) income for lost earnings, and b) the increase in marriage rates and early retirement income for the families of younger nondisabled men. • Because the increase in transfer income did not fully offset the earnings loss of the older nondisabled group, they recorded a decline in overall income and a doubling of the rate of poverty and near poverty.
