Here are two great employment stories from our Division of Developmental Disabilities. Read Liz's story here and Lisa's story here.

Work Incentives Public Information Sessions
AinA

Do you receive SSI or SSDI? Would you like to work but are concerned that working could affect your benefits? If so, consider attending a Work Incentives Public Information session. These sessions are sponsored by the DHS/Office of Rehabilitation Services, Paul V. Sherlock Center on Disabilities and CPNRI. There is no cost to participate.

Session Flyer, Schedule and Mail-In Registration Form can be found here.

PLEASE NOTE: These sessions are for individuals already receiving SSI or SSDI benefits or those supporting them, they are not "how to apply for benefits" sessions.

Survey by Advocates in Action RI
AinA

Advocates in Action (AA) is conducting a survey as part of their ongoing work with the Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD). AinA will share feedback with DDD, who will use this information to help guide decisions about changes and improvements to the RI DD Service System.

Advocates in Action RI will not share individual answers or any personally identifiable information without permission.

When the survey is complete, AinA will use the overall data to share reports and recommendations about the DD Service System with various audiences. No names or any personally identifiable information will be listed in the recommendations or the findings.
