Marketing & Training on Disability Benefits

New Jersey

DiscoverAbility NJ has partnered with the World Institute on Disability (WID) to improve the capacity to figure benefits and support for better employment outcomes by upgrading the current New Jersey Benefits Calculator (DB 101) and translating it into Spanish. DiscoverAbility NJ has partnered with the Family Resource Network to provide a NJ DB101 training program to 17 ARC Directors, 26 One Stop Directors, 9 Center for Independent Living Directors and 19 Vocational Rehabilitation offices. www.njdb101.org is a powerful internet based tool that can help job seekers with disabilities carefully plan for the transition to work through enhanced knowledge about health care coverage and other public benefits. DiscoverAbilty NJ supports this effort and is working to increase knowledge and use of the customized disability benefits website.
