Getting a job can affect your disability benefits, including Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), Medicare, Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS), or other benefits.

It’s important for you to be organized and follow all the rules related to benefits when you have a job. By doing things right, you can make sure that your transition to work goes well. That’s why DB101’s Going to Work Toolbox includes:

  • Information about working and benefits
  • Ideas about how to keep track of everything you need to know
  • Forms and tools you can use to manage your cash and health benefits
  • Tips on how to interact with the agencies that offer benefits to you
  • Explanations of how work incentives can help you get a job without giving up the benefits you need

By being prepared and knowing the rules, you can help things go smoothly with your benefits as you begin to work.
