Balancing Work and Benefits for Persons with Spinal Cord Injuries
Many people with SCI want to work but worry about how their SSI or SSDI benefits will be affected if they do so. Learn what you need to know about working while receiving SSI or SSDI benefits. Our speaker, Emma Henselbecker, is a benefits counselor with Plan to Work of Washington State and an expert on federal, state and local benefits in relation to employment goals. She will clarify all those confusing acronyms—like SGA, TWP, EPE, IRWE*—and help you understand the process of getting back into the work force while protecting your benefits.
*Substantial Gainful Activity, Trial Work Period, Extended Period of Eligibility, Impairment Related Work Expense.
5:30 PM - 6:30 PM Meet & Greet: Meet in the hospital cafeteria to socialize, network and eat before heading to the forum. Purchase dinner or bring your own. No RSVP—just show up!
