Private disability insurers' retun-to-work programs can save the federal government $25 billion over the next decade. That's according to a report issued today by Charles River Associates, in partnership with America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP).

Using publicly available information, the study reveals that there have been at least 65,000 employees at any point in time in recent years that would have been receiving Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) -- and, likely, other federal benefits -- if they had not been covered by group long-term disability (GLTD) insurance. The report also claims that the annual total of avoided SSDI and other federal benefits is approximately $30,000 per year for affected individuals.
