Benefits Planning Service

You may be wondering what will happen to your Social Security cash benefits and medical coverage if you go back to work. A number of special rules put in place by Social Security called work incentives, are now available to encourage you to try work. Work incentives have made it possible for many SSI/SSDI recipients to earn more than they ever thought possible with benefits alone. There are trained and certified benefits counselors, sometimes called benefits planners, to help you understand the impact of work on your personal circumstances.

RiseHands Communication provides benefits planners that can help you understand the impact of work on your personal circumstances.
