Sources of Income and Savings - Employment
Having a job is great! There are many state agencies and other organizations that may help you find the right job or help you learn the skills you need to get the right job. Being employed means that you get paid for work that you do. When you have a job, this is a source of income!
Important Things to Remember:
- You can only make a certain amount of income if you still want to receive your government benefits, but don’t let that stop you!
- If you want to work or go back to work and you receive government benefits, it is important that you contact the Social Security Administration (SSA) right away. Call the SSA at 1-800-772-1213 or 1-800-325-0778 (TTY) for assistance. Click here to find a Social Security Office close to where you live.
- The Division of Vocational Rehabilitation can still be a resource for you even if you are not receiving government benefits.
