WIPA is designed to enable beneficiaries with disabilities to receive accurate information and use that information to make a successful transition to work. Each WIPA agency has a CWIC who will:

  • provide in-depth counseling about benefits and the effect of work on those benefits;
  • conduct outreach efforts to beneficiaries of SSI and SSDI (and their families) who are potentially eligible to participate in federal or state Work Incentives programs; and
  • work in cooperation with federal, state and private agencies and nonprofit organizations that serve SSI and SSDI beneficiaries with disabilities.
