October 17, 2017 at 9:00 am$99
**THIS IS NOT AN OPRA HOSTED EVENT**
OPRA member Toward Independence is hosting Michael Walling, author of The Guide: To Social Security Programs and Work Incentives, 24th Edition, 2016, for a training on benefits and employment for the individual agencies support. Michael is highly regarded for his ability to explain this subject in “plain English” and to teach this subject to beneficiaries and professional novices.
After the session attendees will be able to answer:
- What four events that must occur before a person can terminate from SSDI while working?
- How can a person earn $39,326 and maintain eligibility for SSI and Medicaid?
- How can someone earn more than $1,170 a month and still receive SSDI and Medicare?
- Does a beneficiary’s financial plan incorporate how wage and other income impact the payment(s) from Social Security?
Michael currently consults with a variety of states and organizations on benefit counseling services, employment services, medical benefits, and related matters. He travels throughout the country to provide workshops to state agencies and organizations.
