PASS: Plan For Achieving Self Support
This video is about how people with disabilities can take advantage of a work incentive offered by the Social Security Administration. It’s called the Plan for Achieving Self-Support, or PASS for short. The PASS allows you to set aside income or resources to put towards a work goal. For example, you could set aside money for education, vocational training, or starting a business. You could also use a PASS to pay for other work related items, such as, a personal attendant, a job coach, an electric wheelchair, a computer or other assistive technology, occupational therapy, transportation expense, or even a custom van. The PASS allows you to earn more money to put towards a work goal, without reducing your SSI benefits.
