Friends –

Do you want to work but are afraid of losing your benefits?

Thousands of Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) beneficiaries have learned how to stay in control of their benefits while enriching their lives through employment.  You can, too!

The Work Incentives Planning and Assistance (WIPA) Program helps individuals with all disabilities understand how employment affects Social Security benefits.

Representatives from BBVS, Social Security, and an advocate from Disability Rights Network of Pennsylvania, will speak about specific work incentives that support your employment goals.  In addition, you won’t want to miss our nationally known, surprise Guest Speaker!
