OPWDD Benefits Planning and Work Incentives Webinar Series: The Plan For Achieving Self Support (PASS)- An Overview

The PASS is a powerful work incentive that allows SSI recipients to exclude income and/or resources that would otherwise be counted in determining SSI eligibility. If used for approved goods or services, the money set aside in a PASS will not be counted by the SSI program. This then allows the individual to become eligible for SSI, retain SSI eligibility, or become eligible for a larger SSI check.

This webinar will cover the following topics on the Plan for Achieving Self Support:
  • What is a PASS?
  • Examples of how a PASS can benefit an individual with a disability
  • Criteria for PASS approval
  • The Criteria for increasing the prospect for self support
  • The feasible work goal
  • Savings and expenditures
  • Time limits
  • Amendments to the Pass
  • Suspension and Termination of a PASS
