DRCVI to Hold ‘Ticket to Work Conference’ for Those on SSD

The Disability Rights Center of the Virgin Islands (DRCVI) and partners will hold a Ticket to Work Conference for the beneficiaries of Social Security Disability. It will take place from 8:30-11:30 a.m., Friday, Aug. 5, at the Windward Passage Hotel Conference Room A on St. Thomas. This is a free event.
DRCVI and the Movimiento Para el Alcance de Vida Independiente (MAVI) Work Incentive Planning and Assistance Program (WIPA) will host an informational workshop for beneficiaries of Social Security Disability who would like to engage in some type of work activity to either supplement their income or become financially independent through the Social Security Administration’s Ticket to Work Program.
This presentation will also provide information to employers about the availability of a part time work force regarding issues such as:
Ø Cost effective accommodations for persons with a disability
Ø Advantages of employing persons with a disability (own health insurance)
Ø Dedicated and committed employees
It is strongly recommended that participants RSVP by calling 776-4303. Any request for special accommodations should be made in advance.

Our sites are more popular than ever, but advertising revenues are falling - so you can see why we could use your help. Our independent journalism costs time, money and hard work to keep you informed, but we do it because we believe that it matters. If everybody who appreciates our reporting efforts were to help fund it for as little as $1, our future would be much more secure. Thanks in advance for your support!
