Cornell University’s Yang-Tan Institute advances equal opportunity for people with disabilities in partnership with federal and state government and philanthropic organizations.

I am looking forward to the day when Dustin Sweeney is earning a paycheck from his job. However, that brings complications in terms of his Social Security and other benefits. This webinar by Ray Cebula of Cornell University’s Yang-Tan Institute on Employment and Disability starts to answer those questions on how to keep your SSI benefits while you work. It is a complicated conversation, and it is only the start of the conversation.

To help navigate this process, Dustin Sweeney and our Developmentally Disabled population have access to a “Benefits Planning Agency” which can be found at:

Social Security Administration’s “Ticket To Work”

PS - Yes, I know we need less rather than more agencies in the navigation of this Self-Direction world, but this is where we are today.

Here is the slide presentation from the webinar, and below that is a streaming link:
