If you’re a Texan who receives Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and you aren’t currently employed, you might wonder how working will impact your SSDI benefits. While there are several work incentive programs designed to help you transition securely into the workforce, sometimes the programs are overwhelming or difficult to understand.
A new video is available to help you navigate the various SSDI Work Incentive programs so you can make an informed choice when deciding to enter the job market. The video outlines the financial safeguards established by the Social Security Administration, as well as options for maintaining or regaining health benefits so that you can go to work without fear of losing your SSDI benefits.Click here to view the video: SSDI and SSDI Work Incentives for Texans
The videos were developed by the National Disability Institute as part of the Understanding Employment Options and Supports project, which includes additional videos and online training. The project was funded by the Texas Council for Developmental Disabilities.
