Able To Work: Work Incentives Planning & Assistance (WIPA)

WIPA services are available to individuals, ages 14 to full retirement age, who receive or are entitled to SSA benefits, typically Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI), and who are working or seeking employment.

  1. A review of the individual’s benefits,
  2. Discussion of current and future impact of employment and available work incentives
  3. Comprehensive written outline of options available to support informed choice.
