County Sponsors Workshop for SSDI and SSI

FULTON – Oswego County Workforce New York, operated by the Division of Employment and Training, will hold a Work Incentive Seminar Events workshop from 11 a.m. to noon on May 24 to help Social Security Disability Insurance and Supplemental Security Income beneficiaries learn about work incentives and rules that will help them return to work.

“Many people who are receiving SSDI and SSI are afraid of losing their benefits or medical coverage if they return to work,” said Kim Sizemore, disability resource coordinator at Oswego County Workforce New York. “They may not realize they can work up to 12 months with no earning limit and keep their SSDI benefits, or earn up to $46,000 annually, and still keep their Medicaid insurance. This workshop is designed to teach SSI and SSDI beneficiaries about the programs and services they are eligible for and help them return to work successfully.”

Human services providers, Medicaid service coordinators, and family members who wish to learn more about Social Security Disability rules are also encouraged to attend.

Oswego County Workforce is located at 200 N. Second St. in Fulton, across from Mimi’s Restaurant.
