Yes, You Can Work! Maximizing Income Through Competitive Employment

Join us for an informative webinar where we’ll discuss competitive employment opportunities for SSI/SSDI applicants and beneficiaries.

Our panel of experts includes representatives from Cornell Univer­sity’s Yang-Tan Institute on Employment and Disability and National Disability Institute, who will provide an overview of employment supports, opportunities and benefits planning services available to individuals with disabilities.

You’ll hear from a SSI/SSDI Outreach Access and Recovery (SOAR) provider who will share their approach to discussing competitive work with SOAR-assisted SSI/SSDI applicants and collaborating with vocational rehabilitation programs. We will also be joined by an SSI/SSDI beneficiary who will share their personal experience working with a SOAR Specialist and Vocational Rehabilitation to successfully access SSA benefits and obtain employment. Tools and resources developed by the SOAR TA Center will be discussed and shared.
