7.12 What will all these services cost me?

For the most part, the employment support resources summarized in this section will be provided at no cost to you. Even if your plan indicates you need additional schooling or training, these can often be obtained through the State Vocational Rehabilitation Agency or the Ticket-to-Work program. Some employers may actually provide training to new employees if they meet other requirements. Of course, you may use you own funds to advance your career in any way you choose. The Social Security Administration provides other ways to minimize work-related costs, such as the Impairment-Related Work Expense program and the Plan to Achieve Self-Support program. These programs allow people with disabilities who receive Social Security benefits to offset income from wages with work-related expenses, thus enabling them to maintain a greater portion of their benefits.
