Presenter: Lucy Miller, VCU’s National Training Center

Date & Time: 4/19/2018, 2:00pm Eastern

Self-employment is an increasingly popular employment option for individuals with disabilities because it offers both significant flexibility as well as earnings potential. This webcast will present an overview of various work incentives built into the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program that support individuals with disabilities in achieving a self-employment goal. The presenter will also provide a layman's guide to understanding how self-employment income is treated by the SSI program and offer practical tips for reporting this income to Social Security. The presentation will conclude with specific advice about where to get individualized work incentives counseling about the impact of self-employment on SSI benefits.

Presenter: Lucy was hired as one of the original technical assistance liaisons with the SSA funded training center for the BPAO projects and has continued to be a leader in this role through the conversion to WIPA to the present time. As a Technical Assistance Liaison with VCU’s National Training Center, Lucy has distinguished herself by developing an extensive library of user-friendly written material about SSA disability benefits and work incentives. Lucy was the principal author and editor of the current national WIPA training manual and developed more than 35 fact sheets and briefing papers currently posted on the WIPA NTC website. As a trainer, Lucy has utilized many distance learning techniques including classroom based sessions, teleconference training, live satellite broadcasts, webcasts, internet courses, and real-time interactive internet based training.
