Providing Benefits and Work Incentives Planning Supports Just-In-Time: An Introduction to the SSDI and Medicare Youth Toolkit - 9/19/2019

When: Thursday, September 19, 2019, 2:00– 3:30 PM EST

Purpose: Vocational Rehabilitation Counselors (VRC) play a key role in helping youth who receive disability entitlements make informed choices about work, including their earnings and benefits. They also play a key role in supporting both youth and their families in not only understanding the impact of earnings on benefits, but also how to develop pathways to greater economic self-sufficiency in support of their life goals.

As VRCs prepare youth to join the workforce of tomorrow, access to reliable and accessible information about benefits and earnings is essential—as is access to qualified benefits and work incentive planners.  The VRC Just In-Time Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Medicare Toolkit series is comprised of 10 modules based on information most essential to assist VRCs in supporting youth who receive SSDI benefits and Medicare, and their families in navigating a path toward successful employment.
