Quality Trust will host an educational session on Tuesday, November 14th, 2017 from 10:00am – 12:00pm at Quality Trust’s office titled “Opening the Doors to Opportunity: SSI at Age 18.”
This workshop provides an overview of Supplemental Security Income (SSI), a Social Security benefit that is critical in the lives of adults with disabilities because of its link to their eligibility for Medicaid and its long-term services and supports. Come learn practical tips for how to effectively navigate the complicated Social Security system families frequently face when a child with a disability transitions to adulthood.
During this interactive session we will discuss: who is eligible, how and when to apply, what Supplemental Security Income (SSI) will pay for, and how it is possible to keep Medicaid even if SSI cash payments stop because of employment.
The intention of this workshop is to prepare families for what to expect during the SSI eligibility process, where common “sticking points” in that process lie, and how those barriers can be overcome with advance preparation and strategic advocacy. This session is critical for planning for your child’s future; and not to be missed.
