Plan to Achieve Self Support (PASS) Intensive Training
This training provides in-depth information and tools to assist Social Security beneficiaries to write, submit and maintain a Plan to Achieve Self Support (PASS) plan. PASS plans help qualified individuals pay for key expenses related to achieving vocational goals, including education, transportation and equipment.
