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

  • Working, self-employed or about to start work either full-time or part-time.
  • Actively interviewing for employment.
  • Currently receiving services from State Vocational Rehabilitation (VR)*, Ticket to Work Employment Network (EN) or other vocational program or indicate serious intent to work.
