PtW: Understanding Social Security Benefits

March 19 at 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM

This presentation is intended for families/guardians.

Parents and guardians often feel lost when it comes to navigating Social Security disability benefits for their loved one with a disability. This training will provide an overview of the two Social Security disability benefit programs – Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) – which can provide financial support to individuals with disabilities. Presenters will touch on the benefit application process, important factors around turning age 18, the impact of parental income/assets, and the myth that people receiving benefits can’t hold employment to reach further financial security.

This event is presented by Pete Mulder & Allison Leece, Social Security Benefits Counselors of Disability Network Southwest Michigan on:
