演讲摘要: We provide empirical evidence that negative health shocks reduce earnings. The effect is primarily driven by the participation margin and is concentrated in less educated and poor health individuals. We build a lifecycle model that is consistent with these findings. Working age individuals in the model face health and unemployment shocks and choose whether or not to participate in the labor market or exit and apply for social security disability insurance (SSDI). The probability of getting SSDI benefits depends on both an individual's health status and the number of times they've applied. We use the model to quantify the impact of health inequality on lifetime earnings inequality in the U.S. and to study the role of the SSDI program in shaping the participation distribution of older Americans.
