Complex disability benefit regulations have made it difficult for individuals with disabilities to enter the workforce while still maintaining essential healthcare safety nets. Easter Seals Nebraska's Benefits Specialists help their customers develop an individualized plan to reach self sufficiency through full use of state and federal work incentive programs. Social Security Disability Insurance beneficiaries, Nebraskans served by the state vocational rehabilitation program, and young adults with disabilities who are transitioning from school into the workforce all benefit from these Easter Seals services.
Employment provides the opportunity to participate as a member of a community. Easter Seals Nebraska's job training and employment services help people with disabilities learn skills to successfully enter the workforce, or to return to work after an illness or injury. Not only do employees benefit from the satisfaction of having a job, but businesses also gain from their contributions.
