Work Incentives Benefit Specialists

What is a work incentives benefit specialist?

Work incentives benefit specialists help people with disabilities make informed choices about work. They provide information about the potential benefits of employment as a person who receives disability benefits and the special rules about returning to work. They can also analyze how work and earnings may impact disability benefits.

A work incentives benefit specialist can help you decide whether the Ticket to Work Program is right for you and help you understand what services are available to help you return to work.
