The Benefit Program provides services to assist individuals working with the DVR who receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) with understanding how working will affect their benefits. A Benefits Specialist can provide a thorough analysis of the benefits and services received by a person with a disability and the effect that income from employment will have on continued eligibility and the changes it may cause in payments.
