Benefits, skills, jobs…lots to work through when you have a disability. We help people with disabilities understand benefits and reach their employment goals.
Work Incentives Planning & Assistance (WIPA)
is an employment support service that is designed to assist Social Security Administration (SSA) beneficiaries with pursuing their goals of employment and economic self-sufficiency. Individuals receiving Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are provided with free access to information about work incentives, benefits planning, job placement and career development.
Benefit Program (DVR fee-for-service)
provides services to assist individuals who receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) with understanding how working will affect their benefits. We provide a thorough analysis of the benefits and services received by a person with a disability and the effect that working will have on continued eligibility and the changes it may cause in payments.
Benefits Offset National Demonstration Project (BOND)
is a demonstration project through the Social Security Administration (SSA). BOND will test different program policies regarding the treatment of earnings for current Social Security Disability Insurance.
