Employment and Disability Benefits Initiative (EDBI)

WID’s Employment and Disability Benefits Initiative (EDBI) develops community-based public policy recommendations on work and benefits at state and national levels. EDBI has launched an information services tool called Disability Benefits 101 (DB101), which provides community outreach, training, and web-based services that support employment in Alaska, Arizona, California, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, and Ohio. Each state’s website has benefits and work calculators along with current information on health coverage, employment, and benefits that job seekers and workers with disabilities can use to plan employment.

Click on the linked image below to go to the DB101 homepage where it will prompt you to choose your state from a checklist of the 8 states mentioned above.

    1. Hello Mercy,

      Thank you for your message. Right now, this program is available in eight states. In the future, we will add other states too! You can read more about the eight programs here: https://www.db101.org OR you can read about the California program in Spanish here: https://ca-es.db101.org/index.htm I hope this helps.
