EmpowerWORKS has a Certified BIN Liaison on staff that can help beneficiaries understand the impact of employment on federal, state, and local benefits and understand work incentives.
According to national research Social Security Administration (SSA) disability beneficiaries hesitate to participate in return- to-work efforts due to fear that paid employment will cause a loss of critical cash benefits and health insurance.
Social Security Work Incentives
Social Security Work Incentives are rules that help beneficiaries enter, re-enter, or continue in employment by protecting their eligibility for cash payments and/or health care coverage until they achieve self-supporting employment. Whether you're looking for a job for the first time or returning to work after an injury or illness, Work Incentives can help you through the transition to work and towards financial independence.
