Work Incentives Planning and Assistance (WIPA) Service Area
If you are in need of benefits counseling in Massachusetts, there are two Work Incentives Planning and Assistance (WIPA) programs to assist you in understanding how work earnings may impact Social Security and other public benefits. The two WIPA programs are Work Without Limits at UMass Chan Medical School and Project IMPACT at Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission (MRC).
In Massachusetts, Certified Community Work Incentives Coordinators (CWIC) serve:
- Work Without Limits: Berkshire, Franklin, Hampden, Hampshire, Middlesex and Worcester counties.
- Project IMPACT: Bristol, Barnstable, Dukes, Essex, Nantucket, Norfolk, Plymouth, and Suffolk counties (Contact Project IMPACT at 1-800-734-7475).
Work Without Limits also serves New York residents in Albany, Columbia, Greene, Rensselaer, Schenectady, Schoharie, and Washington counties.
