Ticket to Work: Working with a Federal Contractor
Wednesday, August 31, 2016
3:00 - 4:30 PM ET
If you receive Social Security disability benefits (SSI or SSDI) and want to make more money through work, Ticket to Work can provide the support that you need!
Join us on August 31, 2016, for the latest WISE webinar. We will be presenting information on Social Security programs and rules that may apply to you, including details about Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act. Section 503 is a regulation that prohibits federal contractors and subcontractors from discriminating against people with disabilities and requires these employers to take action to recruit, hire, promote, and retain more people with disabilities. The presentation will include information on:
- What Section 503 changes mean for Social Security disability beneficiaries;
- Tips for self-identification during the application and hiring process; and
- Ticket to Work and work incentives.
