ICI: Innovating Services, Improving Outcomes: A VR Model for Serving SSDI Clients

  • Location: 
    Online webinar
    Thursday, September 28, 2017 - 1:30pm to 3:00pm

State vocational rehabilitation (VR) agencies, the main source of job services for people with disabilities, help individuals receiving Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) to become more independent and economically successful.

Recent research suggests that VR services for these individuals could be improved. Although SSDI beneficiaries who receive VR services see their earnings increase, only a small share earn enough to leave the disability rolls.
The Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA) Project builds the capacity of VR organizations to improve employment outcomes for individuals with disabilities receiving Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. Read on to learn about our next webinar and our new video series!
Date: Thursday, September 28
Time: 1:30 - 3:00pm ET
Panelists from Mathematica Policy Research, the Institute for Community Inclusion, and the Council of State Administrators of Vocational Rehabilitation will discuss the experiences of VR agencies in Kentucky and Minnesota that implemented SGA Project innovations, which were designed to help beneficiaries prepare for and find jobs with earnings high enough to leave the disability rolls.
