During the second quarter of 2012, the unemployment rate among people with disabilities dropped to its lowest in more than three years while applications for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits continue to stabilize, reports Market Watch.

Approximately three million individuals were unable to continue to work in 2011 because of a disability and applied for SSDI. With a wait time of more than 800 days, nearly 1.8 million SSDI claims are pending.
