Introducing the WorkVT2.0 Project
This exciting new project is designed to help beneficiaries of Social Security disability programs replace their benefits with higher-wage employment with support from a team of professionals trained in career counseling, employment supports, and benefits navigation. This research project, funded by the Kessler Foundation, also offers financial supports and incentives for reaching certain employment milestones.
