Benefits Counseling and the Path to Employment
If you receive disability benefits (SSI/SSDI) and are considering returning to work – or working for the first time – you’re probably wondering how that income will affect your benefits. Choosework.ssa.gov has resources that can help you make an informed decision.
Benefits Counseling is a free service offered by many Ticket to Work (Ticket) program service providers to explain how working will affect your federal and state benefits, including:
- SSI and SSDI
- Housing Assistance
- Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)/food stamps
- Healthcare benefits, including Medicare and Medicaid
