Description

Social Security benefits play a large role in transition planning. Families and young people need to be aware of the value of these programs to youth and adults with disabilities in funding adult services and medical insurance, and also of the possibility of work incentives to help fund employment. Families and youth also need accurate information about the impact of income on these benefits. (Many people still believe that if they go to work, expand their hours, or accept raises they will no longer receive financial or medical benefits.) This session will provide an overview of SSI and SSDI and explain the impact of income on both. Don’t let misinformation be a barrier to employment for youth on your caseload!

This is the first of three webinars in the TACE Transition Webinar Series: Social Security Administration and Transition.
