Work Incentives Planning and Assistance-Taking the next step on your Employment Journey!

This presentation will introduce Social Security Work Incentives, options available to maintain healthcare while working (Medicare and Medicaid), Ticket to Work and the employment network’s responsibilities to help Social Security Disability Beneficiaries through the Vocational Rehabilitation process. In addition, Social Security Disability Beneficiaries will be given the opportunity to information on connecting with a Community Work Incentive Counselor, which starts the process of giving each beneficiary an informed choice concerning pursuing employment. Customers and potential customers, all Social Security beneficiaries, and community partners are encouraged to attend.

Wendy has worked alongside families who have sons and daughters with disabilities for over fifteen years. She began as a trainer and consultant with a school district and has trained teams with the Illinois Autism Training and Technical Assistance Project and guided support teams who transitioned people who were moving from a state operated developmental center. Her son, Quinn, now 20, has taught her to see the world with a different lens and a bold heart. Quinn's microboard honors HIS priorities despite the complexities and emotions surrounding it all. It turns out, he likes doing things everyone else does, like throwing parties, being in clubs, working out, going to the movies with friends, taking college classes and helping others. The support looks different, but time and again, he reminds us it's worth it all.
