Training will focus on topics of Student Earned Income Exclusion (SEIE), deductions for certain medical items required to work, and protecting Medicaid coverage. Topics will also include re-qualifying for SSI as an adult and qualifying for SSI at age 18.

Presented by Ray Cebula, a lawyer from Cornell University’s Yang-Tan Institute on Employment & Disability. He will explain how the Social Security Administration makes it easier and safer for SSI-eligible youth to consider career employment by using work incentives.   

Come, listen, and learn how we can help your child, and your entire family, by allowing more money to come into your household as well as protect important health care benefits for your transition-aged child. 


This session is tailored to transition-aged youth ages 14 to 21 and their parents/support individuals. Older students can attend without parent/guardian.


Free! Light supper provided.
