CO DB101 is Live!
Did you know that one of the biggest barriers for people with disabilities pursuing work is the fear of losing benefits? One common misconception is that individuals receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), Food Stamps, Medicaid, or other benefits can’t work. This misconception is all too common and misconceptions should not guide an individual’s decision to work.
An exciting resource has come to Colorado, called Colorado Disability Benefits 101, or CO DB101! This site has estimators to explore work and benefits as well as information and resources to guide a person along a career path.
