Disability Rights Ohio is again providing benefits counseling, a free service available to people who receive Social Security benefits because of disability, through the Social Security Administration's Work Incentives Planning and Assistance (WIPA) Program. 

The Social Security Administration offers "work incentives" designed to help people transition from receiving disability checks to earning money through work. Benefits counseling has the goal of reducing or eliminating a person's dependence on public benefits, while addressing their concerns about issues like continuing health care benefits. 

Certified Work Incentive Coordinators (CWICs) provide individualized counseling to help people use these work incentives and understand their impact on the person’s employment.
