Benefits Planning and Consultation 

Kara Ault- (CWIP)  provides credentialed work incentive planning and consultation. Kara has been helping individuals understand how work can impact entitlement benefits since 2018.

What is Work Incentive Planning?

The goal of the Work Incentives Planning and Assistance (WIPA) program is to enable beneficiaries with disabilities to receive accurate information, and use that information to make a successful transition to work. Each WIPA project has Community Work Incentives Coordinators (CWIC) who will:

provide in-depth counseling about benefits and the effect of work on those benefits;

conduct outreach efforts to beneficiaries of SSI and SSDI (and their families) who are potentially eligible to participate in federal or state Work Incentives programs; and

work in cooperation with federal, state and private agencies and nonprofit organizations that serve SSI and SSDI beneficiaries with disabilities.
