Are you getting disability benefits? We can help you get to work.
If you are getting disability benefits, we have good news for you. Through the Social Security’s Work Incentives Planning and Assistance program (WIPA) we can help you if you are interested in finding employment. Also, we can serve SSI/SSDI beneficiaries if you are working with the Division of Rehabilitation Services (DRS).
The Easter Seals North Texas WIPA program team will help answer all of your questions about Social Security’s work incentives and help you to make an informed decision about working. Plus, we will equip Social Security disability beneficiaries with the timely and accurate information they require in order to support their goals for employment and greater economic self-sufficiency.

"They should promote Laurie Truesdell. Other professionals told me not to go to work and that I would lose my benefits. They scare people to not going to work. Laurie was the first professional to be happy that I went back to work. The knowledge that Laurie shared removed the fear barrier to employment."
