SSDI (Title II) Work Incentives

 

Graphic image representing work incentives, showing person at computer with another person looking over his shoulder.Work Incentives (WIís) are rules that determine how your Title II Social Security Disability benefits will be affected if/when you go to work. They are designed to help you enter or reenter the workforce by protecting your entitlement to cash payments and/or medical benefits until you can support yourself. You are encouraged to work or seek education or training for future employment. WIís give you the support you need to move from benefit dependency to self-sufficiency.

NOTE: In the 2001 version of its "Red Book," the Social Security Administration (SSA) began using the term "Employment Supports" in place of "Work Incentives." See the SSA Red Book topic for additional information. The latest version of SSA's Red Book on Employment Support is available at: http://www.socialsecurity.gov/redbook/
