Over the years, self-determination and choice have become important aspects of vocational rehabilitation, supported employment and other disability support areas. This webcast will give a brief history of self-determination, then focus on self-determination’s important role in workplace support and employment issues. In looking towards the future, strategies will be given to determine personal preferences to support career decision making, goal setting, work-place problem solving, self-advocacy and leadership.

Date & Time: June 26, 3:30pm Eastern

This webcast will provide information about how Supplemental Security Insurance (SSI) cash benefits are affected by paid employment and emphasizes how favorably the SSI program treats earned income. Work incentives such as the Student Earned Income Exclusion and Impairment Related Work Expenses are introduced and examples are provided which illustrate how these work incentives can be used to reduce how much earned income Social Security counts when calculating the SSI cash payment amounts.
