Incentives that work
All too often, people with disabilities are reluctant to seek employment or pursue a better-paying job.
The fear is that a new job or more money in their paycheck might make them ineligible for cash payments, healthcare coverage, or in-home assistance.
Programs called work incentives are changing that belief by encouraging people with disabilities to enter and succeed in the workforce.
The following pages are designed for people with disabilities who receive Social Security benefits. You will learn how having a job can affect your benefits while also learning about incentives and resources to help you succeed at your job.
