Annually, the Federal government makes adjustments that impact Social Security Benefits. This is an important feature to consider when planning out the use of work incentives and earnings with our consumers.
Participants will receive valuable information to adjust their planning and support calculations, such as the 2017 Cost-of-Living Adjustments (COLA) to the title 2 Trial Work Period (TWP) and Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA) amounts, the SSI Federal Benefit Rate (FBR), applicable work incentives, as well as rate changes to Medicaid and Medicare. The speaker will discuss what, if any, impact the potential increase could have on other needs based benefits such as Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
Located at the University of North Texas in Denton, Texas, UNTWISE is a training and consultancy group for programs seeking to enhance employment outcomes for individuals with disabilities. UNTWISE conducts training, hosts conferences, and provides technical assistance to community rehabilitation programs (CRP) and organizations serving individuals with disabilities.
