Work Incentives Planning and Assistance (WIPA)

Work Without Limits provides benefits counseling services
through a Social Security WIPA grant.

We provide one-on-one counseling on the impact of work earnings or wage increases on:

  • Cash benefits (SSI/SSDI)
  • Health insurance (MassHealth/Medicare)
  • Other public benefits (Housing, SNAP, etc.)

This service is for SSI/SSDI beneficiaries between the ages of 14 and full retirement age. To prioritize services for beneficiaries who are most vulnerable to overpayment, and most in need of immediate attention, we serve beneficiaries meeting the following priority order:

  • Individuals working, self-employed or about to start work full-time.
  • Individuals working, self-employed or about to start work part-time.
  • Individuals with a pending job offer.
  • Individuals with recent (within 30 days) or upcoming/scheduled job interview(s).
  • Individuals who are currently receiving services from State Vocational Rehabilitation (VR)*, Ticket to Work Employment Network (EN), other vocational program and/or with a serious intent to work.

*State VR in MA is the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission (MRC or Mass Rehab) and the Massachusetts Commission for the Blind (MCB). State VR is NY is ACCES-VR and NY State Commission for the Blind.
