Benefits and Work Incentive Counseling services help people with disabilities make informed decisions about work, benefits and the use of work incentives to achieve their employment goals, as well as helping them navigate the benefits system when they begin working.
Many people with disabilities believe that if they go to work, they will lose all of their federal and state benefits or their medical insurance, but this is seldom true.
These counseling services:
- provide information and assistance
- reduce fear and misunderstanding about the effect that working has on benefits
- help prevent crises when change occurs
- improve employment and economic outcomes
