CareerACCESS is a community-driven, proposed program of reforms to the Social Security Administration’s Supplemental Security Income Program (SSI). It would provide an alternative benefits program for young adults with disabilities, ages 18-30.
This program would be piloted in 5 states with services and supports to propel youth into careers, enable them to build assets, and allow them to keep their disability benefits while building their careers. The program will be driven by an individual career plan including: coaching, counseling and employment support service. The goal is independence through employment.
