The National Council on Independent Living, World Institute on Disability, Policyworks, and YO! Disabled & Proud recently presented a discussion on advocating for improved Social Security policies for working people with disabilities.
If you are someone with a disability who uses benefits like SSI or Medi-Cal, and you want to have a job, it can be hard and stressful because of the complicated rules and lack of help available to understand it all. Without the right support, you could lose your benefit or health care. The way the system is set up doesn’t make sense. It limits us from reaching our career goals. CareerACCESS is here to help. Together we can work to make the system more meaningful for all of us who want to go to work and earn money.
We discussed these important issues during the webinar, and if you missed it, it’s now available on YouTube at any time. Special thanks to all those who participated and shared their stories during the webinar!
