This forum addresses Life, HIV, Aging and Disability.
Let’s Kick ASS is collaborating with AIDS Legal Referral Panel, Openhouse and Positive Resource Center for this important dialog. It will be a primer in advance of a series of workshops on these topics:

Many long-term survivors have been on disability for years but yearn to earn more money.
Others are wondering what happens to income when they turn 65. And some need to get on disability.

Do you wander about returning to work or supplementing your income and wondering what it will do to your benefits?

But rather than worry let's plan. John Faseky with the AIDS Legal Referral Panel (ALRP.org), Andy Chu with Positive Resource Center and Ellyn Bloomfield of Openhouse (Openhouse-SF.org) join us to answer your questions about returning to work, getting on disability, and what retirement means after years on disability.
Please bring your questions and join us for this interactive town hall. Let's Kick ASS—empowering you to make your life better.
