Navigating through the complex world of government benefits can be tricky, time consuming, and overwhelming. Often, due to a lack of understanding, (and a lack of clarity in government language) families often apply for these benefits with incomplete documentation, and/or make errors during the application process. Aside from being frustrating, these mistakes can be costly; they can prolong the amount of time it takes for your child to receive these benefits, and can sometimes jeopardize your child’s eligibility.

The “Understanding SSI/Medicaid & SSDI/Medicare” workshop is designed to help families reach a greater understanding of the types of government benefits programs available; these benefits are explained in clear, concise language – we spend time discussing what exactly the government benefits and programs are, their importance, when to apply, how to apply, how to qualify, and how much money the individual with special needs may possibly receive. We will discuss the process of transitioning between SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) and SSI (Supplemental Security Income), and how to keep Medicaid and/or Medicare without the government benefits of SSI or SSDI. We also briefly touch on work incentives, and how they assist beneficiaries with their employment efforts.

The “Understanding SSI/Medicaid & SSDI/Medicare” seminar is an extremely valuable presentation that can provide clarity to those struggling with these confusing issues, and ensure that you possess the information and resources needed to secure government benefits for your family member with special needs now and in the future. For more information about this presentation, to register for an upcoming session, or to request that this seminar be presented in a venue of your choice, please contact us. We are willing to travel.
