Introduction Avoiding the pitfalls often associated with post-entitlement issues for SSDI and SSI beneficiaries requires proactive planning, monitoring and assistance. Anticipating potential problems that may arise and having interventions ready to support the individual is critical. While individual paths to employment vary based on the person’s desires, abilities and interests, how their benefits are impacted do not—they are static; governed by policy and procedure that can be planned for. This webinar class explores the importance of proactive planning and monitoring, long-term supports, strategies for effective crisis management and ethical considerations for practice.
