Archived Webcast: Employment and Supplemental Security Insurance for Transition Age Youth (2014)

Description:

As teachers, we often hear concerns from students and families about losing their Social Security benefits if they enter the workforce. This webcast will provide information about how Supplemental Security Insurance (SSI) cash benefits are affected by paid employment and emphasizes how favorably the SSI program treats earned income. Work incentives such as the Student Earned Income Exclusion and Impairment Related Work Expenses are introduced and examples are provided which illustrate how these work incentives can be used to reduce how much earned income Social Security counts when calculating the SSI cash payment amounts.
