In February 2017, CCLC will begin its benefits trainings with a two-day information session on Social Security work incentives and benefits.

Throughout the year CCLC will also offer three 4-day, in-person Basic Benefits Information Network (BIN) Trainings and both an online and face-to-face BIN Recertification Training for its BIN liaisons. With their knowledge of work incentives and state and federal benefits, Indiana-certified BIN liaisons can help service professionals provide better planning and support to clients with disabilities and their families. See the Benefits Information Network Training page for more information on dates and locations. Registration information coming soon!

Now in Spanish! ‘Working with Indiana Vocational Rehabilitation Services’
This 4 ½-minute video literally illustrates how the VR process works for adults and high school students with disabilities. Produced by CCLC for Indiana Vocational Rehabilitation Services, the “quick draw” video demonstrates the VR process, discusses eligibility criteria, and explains how VR can help people with disabilities who want to gain skills, find a job after high school or college, start a new career, or even help get a new job if they’ve lost one because of their disability. Watch now (and share!) in English "Working with Indiana Vocational Rehabilitation Services." OR, watch now (and share!) in Spanish "Indiana Servicios de Rehabilitacion Vocational."
