This webinar is part of the Paving the Way to Self Determination program.
Parents and guardians often feel lost when it comes to navigating Social Security disability benefits for their loved one with a developmental 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. (Presented by Disability Network Southwest Michigan.)
