It’s important to be aware that paid employment will have an impact on Supplemental

Security Income (SSI) and/or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. This

training will address how the Social Security Administration (SSA) will reduce SSI

benefits using the “countable income calculation” when the person receiving benefits

has earned income. We will also review reducing the value of wages through

Impairment Related Work Expenses (IRWE).


Please join Daniel Fortuno, President and CEO of Benefits Education Center, and learn

how SSI/SSDI recipients can preserve benefits when employed.

Daniel Fortuño has over 30 years of experience in training, counseling, and education in

health care and benefits administration. As a national expert on disability benefits, he is

highly skilled in interpreting public and private health and welfare benefits programs. Mr.

Fortuño has worked in eleven states across the country and has trained and counseled

over 20,000 individuals and providers during his career.
