In late May, after the WISE Webinar, "Ticket to Work: Free Support for Young Adults in Transition, " we hosted our third Facebook Q&A session where some of you asked your disability employment questions.
Denise Norris and Kendra Berry, Community Work Incentive Coordinators (CWICs) of Aspire Indiana Works joined us to share their expertise gained from their years of working with SSI and SSDI beneficiaries to secure employment. We discussed issues ranging from how graduation will affect benefits to résumé-building for young adults with little or no work experience.
Read through the Q&A transcript below. We hope you will learn something new about how Ticket to Work may be able to benefit you. If you would like to get started working, call the Ticket to Work Help Line at 1-866-968-7842 (V) or 866-833-2967 (TTY/TDD) or contact a service provider using our Find Help Tool.
Note: Questions are listed first in each section. Responses from the Ticket to Work experts are labeled “Expert Response.” Additional comments from fans are labeled “Fan Comment (or Fan Response).” Comments from the moderator are labeled “Moderator Comment.” This transcript was recorded from the chat itself and to preserve authenticity, only egregious spelling errors were corrected and some responses were rearranged to group by question. Please excuse any additional grammar or spelling errors.
Below are acronyms used throughout the chat:
EN: Employment Network
SSI: Supplemental Security Income
SSDI: Social Security Disability Insurance
TTW: Ticket to Work
VR: Vocational Rehabilitation
WIPA: Work Incentives Planning and Assistance
WISE (webinar): Work Incentives Seminar Event
