Many people with a disability want to work, earn more, or start a career. But one of the biggest obstacles is the fear that doing so will lead to a loss of needed medical benefits, or even a loss in total income. There are now many incentives available that make it possible to earn more while keeping needed benefits.
A Work Incentives Benefits Specialist provides information needed for making informed decisions about work. This helps a person understand how earnings may affect disability payments, healthcare, and other publicly funded benefits.
This resource provides information on how to find a benefits specialist and why benefits advice is an essential part of getting and keeping a job.
