Description: There are changes that come into play when a person turns 18 years old, both in life and with Social Security.  For example, anyone who is receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI) has to go through an Age 18 Redetermination. Join this webinar to learn:
  • What the Redetermination process is and how to best prepare for it;
  • What other Social Security disability programs 18-year-olds might qualify for, and how to identify and access them; and
  • What Work Incentives are geared towards younger individuals who receive Social Security benefits.
