The Social Security Administration is offering free Work Incentive Events (WISE) across the country on Wednesday, September 14 and Thursday, September 15 for those who are interested in learning about the agency’s Ticket to Work Program and how working might affect your benefit check.
The SSA says, “WISE are community events held by local organizations for beneficiaries to learn about the Ticket to Work Program and available Work Incentives through accessible, informal, learning opportunities.”
To find of these events in your area and get registered, visit this link.
If you want to learn more but aren’t able to attend one of the conferences, you may instead attend a national online webinar on September 14. You may register for the webinar here.
Social Security’s Ticket to Work Program is free, voluntary, and available to most people who receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits because they are disabled or blind. According to the SSA, eligible beneficiaries may choose to assign their Ticket to an Employment Network (EN) of their choice or to a State Vocational Rehabilitation (SVR) agency to obtain employment services and supports necessary to achieve a work goal. The EN/SVR, if they accept the Ticket, will coordinate and provide appropriate services to help the beneficiary find and maintain employment.

The financial burden that often comes with a serious injury can be too much for many people to bear. Unexpected medical debt, damaged personal property, and the sudden loss of income can impact the budgets of most families. The good news is that a successful injury claim could help reduce that financial strain after a serious accident. Get in touch with a Terre Haute personal injury lawyer with Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin to learn more.
