Benefits Counseling as a Tool to Improve Employment Outcomes for Youth Who Receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

Event Description: 

Mathematica is hosting a webinar about how benefits counseling, when paired with other interventions, can improve employment outcomes for young people with disabilities. Many youth receiving SSI benefits fall behind their peers when it comes to achieving economic success and independence as adults, which raises questions about the effectiveness of existing supports. Given that there has been major growth in the number of youth receiving SSI benefits in the past 10 years, this is an issue of particular policy interest. This is Part 1 in a five-part webinar series.
