CareerACCESS is a career-building alternative to the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program for young adults with disabilities, ages 18-30.
It is a community-driven, proposed program to reform the current Social Security Administration’s Supplemental Security Income Program (SSI) rules so that young adults with disabilities can work and achieve their full potential without risking losing their disability benefits. CareerACCESS will reform the SSI program by providing an alternative benefits program for young adults with disabilities, ages 18-30. This program will be piloted in up to 5 states with services and supports for career-building youth to save their assets and keep their disability benefits while they build their careers. Participants will drive their own Individualized Career Plan (ICP) supported by coaching, counseling, and employment support services.
The goal is independence through employment.
