Work Incentive Planning & Assistance (WIPA) Program
Many Social Security beneficiaries (SSDI and/or SSI) would like to work but are worried that they will lose essential benefits if they have earnings of any kind. The WIPA Program is a FREE service to help beneficiaries of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) to make informed choices. This program is for individuals currently receiving disability benefits, who are considering work, seeking work, self-employed, or currently employed. We will provide you with information about work incentives which may allow you to keep some or all of your cash benefits as well as your medical benefits.

"I really do appreciate your time in presenting the very useful information about working while on SSI. It was a very relaxed presentation, and I came away much better informed, and more comfortable with my situation. The future seems to be a little bit brighter." ~ John M.
