If you are blind or have a visual impairment, it is possible for you to work and continue receiving your disability benefits. Social Security’s Ticket to Work and other Work Incentives can provide the employment supports you need to succeed on the job. Even if you don’t meet the legal definition of blindness, you may still qualify for disability benefits if you have a visual impairment that prevents you from working. 

The June 22 national WISE webinar, Ticket to Work for Beneficiaries Who are Blind or Have a Visual Impairment, will present information about Work Incentives and supports tailored specifically to your needs. Work Incentives Planning & Assistance Projects and Employment Networks will offer information on:

* Blind Work Expenses for SSI Beneficiaries
* Impairment Related Work Expenses for SSDI Beneficiaries
* Substantial Gainful Activity if You Work
* Substantial Gainful Activity if You are Self-Employed
* Incentives for Blind or Visually Impaired Beneficiaries after age 55
