The Family Resource Network’s New Jersey Work Incentives Network Support (NJWINS) program assists Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) beneficiaries to start, continue or increase work efforts while maintaining benefits for as long as they are needed.

SSI Beneficiaries will learn that it is always better for them to do as much work as they can because they will always have more total monthly income and that losing a check does not necessarily mean they will lose their Medicaid as well. SSI Beneficiaries will be taught to use the following Work Incentives:

  • 1619a Earnings Formula
  • 1619b Medicaid
  • Student Earned Income Exclusion
  • Impairment Related Work Expenses
  • Plans for Achieving Self Support

SSDI Beneficiaries will learn that only work can create an SSDI account and only work can change or stop the receipt of SSDI benefits. SSDI Beneficiaries will be taught to use the following Work Incentives:

  • Trial Work Period
  • Extended Period of Eligibility
  • Impairment Related Work Expenses
  • Subsidies
  • 3 Month Grace Period
  • Extended Medicare
  • Expedited Reinstatement

Both SSI and SSDI Beneficiaries will be taught about the following:

  • NJ WorkAbility Medicaid Buy-In Program
  • Continuing Disability Reviews
  • Ticket Usage
  • Employment Networks
