Self-paced, online content available October 1 through December 23, 2020.
Families and individuals with disabilities need information and guidance about how benefits and work incentives can impact work and earnings. Through this informational, comprehensive online training, employment professionals, community service providers, and transition coordinators learn the benefits basics:
- Social Security Work Incentive programs
- Income and asset regulations
- Health care coverage—Medicaid, Medicare, other insurance
- Savings—ABLE accounts, special needs trusts
- The Ticket to Work program
- The “other benefits” alphabet soup: SNAP, TANF, and HUD
Though it does not provide certification (competency training is not required), this Social Security Work Incentives and Other Federal and State Benefits provides participants with a wealth of information and resources.
Training is self-paced, and all content modules will be available on Canvas through December 23, 2020. Content includes up-to-date information as of August 2020. Since the course is self-paced, you can begin anytime while course materials are live. Estimated time for completion: 10 hours. Upon enrolling, participants will receive instructions and the link to Canvas. Note: When you register, you’ll receive an email invitation to the course. Be sure to accept that invitation or Canvas will not allow you to open the course modules.
For more information and to enroll, see the 2020 Social Security Work Incentives & Other Federal and State Benefits listing on the IU Calendar. Training is $125 per person.
