Employment First: Benefits Advisory System Training Webinars

New York

“As part of the Employment First initiative, the New York Employment Service System (NYESS) team has been working over the last several months to develop a series of tools that will directly benefit individuals with disabilities who are either working or are determining whether to seek employment. To this end, we are pleased to announce the roll out of a unique approach to benefits advisement that will initially seek to assist individuals with wage reporting, the 1619b program, the Medicaid Buy-In Program, and in the near future will assist with other benefits and work incentives.

In preparation for the roll out of this process in the first quarter of 2018, we are initially inviting all professionals who support individuals with disabilities to attend a webinar to learn more about the process design, to understand what your role will be as a provider/advocate, and to obtain an overview of each benefit that will be addressed in the process.”
