General Information
Description of ServiceMany people receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and/or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) would like to explore work opportunities or increase their earnings, but are concerned about losing cash benefits and health care. While these benefits are intended to provide basic support for millions of persons with disabilities, they have evolved as a new obstacle to the search for gainful employment and greater participation in community living.

Since 2001, AHEDD has been helping participants understand how to maximize their benefits and related work incentives to achieve greater financial independence and reach their employment goals. We can provide WIC to anyone receiving an SSI and/or SSDI cash payment between the ages of 14 and 64. Ideally, this service is for persons who are working or are considering work in the near future.
