Incentives to Work

The SSI program provides a variety of incentives for people with disabilities to work. As with SSDI, impairment-related work expenses are deducted from gross earnings before a determination is made as to whether an applicant is engaging in a substantial gainful activity.


The SSI program provides a variety of incentives for people with disabilities to work. As with SSDI, impairment-related work expenses are deducted from gross earnings before a determination is made as to whether an applicant is engaging in a substantial gainful activity. Expenses may include medical devices, attendant care, or structural alterations to an automobile that enable the person to drive to work and residential modifications, such as a wheelchair ramp, or enlargement of a doorway for a person who works at home.

 

Two additional features are common to SSI and SSDI. First, the applicant for SSI must accept a referral for vocational rehabilitation services if these are deemed appropriate. Acceptance of a referral is a condition for receiving a grant, unless the applicant has good cause to refuse to participate in a referred to program. Benefits will continue for individuals who are engaged in an approved vocational rehabilitation program, if program completion is likely to enable the person to work permanently.

 

Second, subsidized employment may be available for an individual whose skills are not as fully developed as those of a nondisabled worker. Subsidies may support providing the disabled worker with more supervision than others who are doing the same job, or they may support task simplification, which is accomplished by assigning some task-related responsibilities to another worker.
