Because of the complex and numerous interactions between cash benefits, health care, and subsidies many individuals with disabilities are discouraged from working because they fear for their financial and health futures.
In communities all across America, hundreds of benefits and work incentives specialists are trained to provide information and in-depth analysis to individuals currently receiving benefits so that those individuals can make informed choices about employment. Some practitioners are funded by the Social Security Administration, some of us work for state agencies, while others work in community rehabilitation programs. All of us are committed to seeing that people with disabilities get the highest quality information available to support choices regarding work and increased economic self-sufficiency. The profession of benefits and work incentives planning and assistance is a growing field -- taking its place as a critical employment support service for individuals who receive disability benefits.
As the profession of benefits and work incentives specialists matures, the creation of a national association to promote education, credentialing and a broad understanding of the field is a natural next step.
