Oregon SSI and SSDI Workshop

autism SSI SSDI free workshop in Portland Oregon It can be a nightmare negotiating the intricacies of benefits offered through SSI and SSDI for our loved ones with Autism. So I’m happy to alert my Oregon readers to a free resource coming up next week. I think it’s going to be something you’ll want to attend if at all possible.

Autism Society of Oregon (ASO) is hosting a free event that will improve the lives of all affected by autism. It’s a Workshop entitled, “Plan for Work” Benefits Planning: Busting Myths on Work and SSI/SSDI Benefits. It will cover the following topics:

  • Overviews of Social Security Administration disability benefits program
  • Work incentives associated with Social Security Disability (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
  • Medicaid and Medicare connections to SSDI and SSI
  • Individual Development Accounts and the ABLE act.
