BenePLAN assists individuals with disabilities — in particular those who receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) — to understand how working and earning or increasing wages impacts these and other public benefits. If you are currently receiving SSDI and/or SSI due to a disability and have questions about how your benefits will be affected by going to work or increasing your hours or pay, our team of highly skilled and experienced Community Work Incentives Coordinators (CWICs) can help.
BenePLAN is a program of the University of Massachusetts Medical School Center for Health Policy and Research. BenePLAN CWICs are trained and certified by Virginia Commonwealth University and they each possess extensive experience in employment and benefits.
BenePLAN offers a number of training opportunities throughout the year.
Please see our Upcoming Events Schedule for a list of free Basic Overiew Trainings conducted at a number of local One-Stop Career Centers in Massachusetts.
