A commission has been launched into why disabled adults spend around £36bn a year on extra costs due to their disability.
It comes after new research conducted with ITV News found people pay a "financial penalty" of an average £550 per month when it comes to living costs.
The study from Scope suggests one in ten people with a disability pay £1,000 extra per month.
The organisation's Priced Out report also found that disabled people:
- Are twice as likely to have unsecured debt amounting to more than half of their household income
- Are three times more likely to use doorstep loans
- Have £108,000 fewer savings and assets than non-disabled people on average
- Have smaller pension pots - among 55-64-year-olds, non-disabled people have on average £125,000 more in private pension savings
- Are often turned down for insurance - six in ten rejected for cover said it was because of their disability.
