Abstract: The existing system of social support and employment of people with disabilities has undergone significant changes in connection with the transition to the market model of the Russian economy, which necessitated the development and adoption of a new model of social policy in the field of employment of people with disabilities. The involvement of people with disabilities with a sufficient level of education in the work is of great importance as it contributes to the socialization of the person and understanding of their importance in society. Moreover, the employment of people with disabilities in the context of the country’s declining working-age population will contribute to the saturation of the labor market and the filling of available vacancies by workers.
