Area Work Incentives Coordinator (AWIC)

Social Security created the new full-time position of Area Work Incentives Coordinator (AWIC) in May 2003. The 58 newly-appointed AWICs will:

                   Coordinate and/or conduct public outreach on work incentives in their local areas;

                   Provide and/or coordinate and oversee training on SSA's employment support programs for all personnel;

                   Handle some sensitive or high profile disability work-issue cases, if necessary; and

                   Monitor the disability work-issue workloads in their respective areas.

The AWICs will coordinate with the 1335 Work Incentives Liaisons in local offices, Public Affairs Specialists, the Plan for Achieving Self-Support (PASS) Cadre members and other personnel. SSA intends to provide improved services and information on SSA's employment support programs to beneficiaries with disabilities who want to start or keep working.

Locating and Contacting an AWIC

Each SSA regional office maintains an online list of contact information for AWICs within their region. The country is divided into ten SSA regions, as shown on the map below. Links to each regional website page containing AWIC contact information are provided below the map.
