Many people believe that if they are on Supplemental Security Income (SSI) that they cannot work, or can only work part-time. This webinar covers what SSI is and how the Social Security Administration defines disability. It also covers important work incentives and other amendments to the Social Security Act that provide beneficiaries with disabilities incentives to return to work.
The work incentives include: Impairment-Related Work Expenses (IRWE), Student Earned Income Exclusion, Plan to Achieve Self-Support (PASS), Special SSI Payments for people who work and Section 1619(b).
The webinar also shares resources for SSI beneficiaries that are interested in returning to work.
