When students with disabilities turn 18, they may be eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits through Social Security.   This presentation will explain the application process, the appeals process, management of the funds and annual reporting requirements.  The speaker will also cover the work rules for recipients of SSI and SSDI (Social Security Disability Income).  Learn more about how your young adult can work and still access SSI to supplement their income and support their ability to earn a living wage. The presenter is Bob Fechtman, an Indianapolis area attorney who specializes in disability and elder care law.

Online registration is now available!

FUSE has partnered with the transition committee of Hancock Madison Shelby Education Services to create the PITSTOP Series on Transition. PITSTOP trainings introduce families to the adult systems and services that may apply to their child, giving them the resource materials and contacts to begin their own process of exploring appropriate options with their young adult transitioning from high school.

Special thanks to the JMC Technology Group and MetLife Center for Special Needs Planning for their sponsorship of this training series.
