Benefits Planning


Build the Life You Want. Keep the Benefits You Need.

Benefits Planning for people with disabilities is a service that:

  • Helps you understand how employment and other life decisions may impact your benefits.
  • Relieves fears you may have about a change in benefits or services if you start working.
  • Helps you make informed decisions on health insurance and other benefits (like Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare, and food, housing, and financial assistance).
  • Provides a clear plan on how you can work to increase your income and quality of life.

Whether you’re interested in part-time employment or a new career, Benefits Planning can help!

DVR is committed to partnering with you to find a meaningful employment outcome. If you are receiving public benefits and are interested in employment, complete the DVR Online Request for Services form to get enrolled with DVR and get connected with a Benefits Planner.
