Benefits Services – Easter Seals, Goodwill of Greater Nebraska, and Region V Services

Nebraska

~~“In October 2017, Vocational Rehabilitation entered into service agreements with these agencies to provide Benefits Services to individuals served by VR who receive Social Security and other benefits. These agencies  employ Certified Benefits Planners who have extensive training in how work incentives may be used by SSA beneficiaries to maximize earning potential and minimize negative impact to benefits. The Benefits Services provide individuals with:
• Answers to any questions they have regarding their current benefits.
• An outline of available work incentive options to assist them in transitioning back to work.
• A projection of financial outcomes for each work incentive option.
• An opportunity to make an informed decision about the work incentive strategies that will work best for them.”
