About this Event

The Work Incentive Practitioner training protocol will prepare participants to assist individuals who receive benefits from SSA and other federal and state agencies, based on disability, to return to work or enter the work force for the first time. Planning is necessary to allow the individual to make informed choices about work while knowing the impact of earned income on all benefits within their individual portfolio.

The participant will receive an intensive, hands on, interactive training session that will cover SSA, the disability programs it administers, the work incentives available to new workers, as well that impact of earnings on other benefits such as housing, SNAP, TANF, and health care. Following the 5 day session, there will be a two week study period to prepare for the on-line examination. There will be a review webinar held during this two week period where specific exercises will be reviewed and then your instructors will be ready to take on any questions you may have.

The on-line exam results in a PASS/FAIL score. Those who PASS will then move into the Practicum, and final, phase of the credentialing protocol. Participants will work with a client who need planning services and will submit specific sections of the file to the instructors for review. Upon successful completion, the participant will be credentialed as a Work Incentive Practitioner. Continuing Education is required to maintain the credential and the practitioner will earn 60 hours of CEU efforts during the 5 year period immediately after earning credentials. Credentials will be renewed for an additional period should the participant successfully earn 60 units during the initial credentialing period.
