This report explores the relationship between disability and poverty among the older population. It emphasises the additional living costs that disabled people face, and the importance of taking disability costs into account when making poverty assessments in the older population. The report considers alternative directions of reform for the system of public support for older people with disabilities and casts doubt on some of the suggestions that have been made for improving the targeting of public support for older disabled people.
