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.
