Disability Benefits: VA’s Medicaid Waivers and SSI (Richmond - Region 1) (PEATC)


This workshop is open to individuals with disabilities, their families, educators, and professionals.

Families with special needs children need to have an understanding of government benefits available to them as part of planning a future for their loved one. These benefits can help supplement a person’s income, qualify a person for extra help, and help them receive healthcare and community supports. Navigating the world of disability benefits can be tricky, time consuming and overwhelming. This workshop will help make that process easier. Join us as we discuss in clear understandable language: what are VA’s Medicaid Waivers and what are Social Security benefits, who is eligible, and how do I apply.
