Benefits Planning

Benefits planning is also critical for artists with disabilities who might access SSI/SSDI.

We need to be able to figure how much we can make and still keep our benefits, how much we need to make to be able to afford to get off our benefits. We need to have a tight handle on our healthcare and health options should we be able to afford to get off of SSI.

We need to understand our safety net.

Also, new pieces like the ABLE accounts are important to integrate into the planning, as well as PASS plans and how they might help.
