Work Incentives for Persons with Disabilities Under the Social Security and SSI Programs

Using the Work Incentives to Fund AT and Make Work a Reality

This booklet presents a detailed discussion of the work incentives available under the Social Security Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Income (SSI) programs, with a special emphasis placed on using work incentives as a tool to fund assistive technology (AT).

It is hoped that this booklet will stimulate interest in the work incentive provisions and that many protection and advocacy, legal services, and other attorneys and advocates will actively promote use of the work incentives and will assist individuals in analyzing how they can make maximum use of them. Hopefully, many readers will begin to look at the work incentives as a way to leverage money for specialized medical services and assistive technology to enhance the work efforts of individuals with disabilities.
