Customized Employment: Earning Money and Social Security Benefits! Virtual - 27573

There are a lot of myths and misconceptions about social security benefits and work. What will happen to their benefits? What will happen to their health insurance? WHAT WILL HAPPEN? Join us to learn more about disability benefits. Topics will include applying, eligibility, how earning are counted, Medicaid, and financial saving opportunities. Come and gain the knowledge, confidence, and resources to move toward employment opportunities for your student. It is highly recommended that parents, educators, and VR also attend additional sessions to fully support youth with disabilities: Everyone Can Work!
