Description

This session builds on the previous session to explain and illustrate how Social Security Work Incentives can be used to support transition from school to work for youth with disabilities. Some youth can access work incentives while they are still in school. They have been able to purchase services that augment what the school provides for employment preparation or save for future costs of supports needed to work. Other youth access work incentives as they exit school and can use these incentives to pay for supports lasting beyond the initial Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) investment. For youth who are in need of extended employment supports in order to work, Social Security work incentives have been used to leverage VR funds when no other funding was available to pay for the needed extended employment services.

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