Great Start recognizes the importance of community involvement and the value of opportunities for families to learn and grow together. We have created these community calendars as a way to share timely community events with you. If you know of any events please take time to add them to our community calendar or forward the information to gsevents@dsisd.net. Please encourage the agencies and organizations that you partner with to do so as well so we can have a comprehensive one stop shop for early childhood information in our communities.

Please note that there are guidelines for submissions and each will be reviewed before posting

Understanding Social Security Benefits (for parents/guardians)

June 11 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Parents and guardians often feel lost when it comes to navigating Social Security disability benefits for their loved one with a disability.

This training will provide an overview of the two Social Security disability benefit programs – Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) – which can provide financial support to individuals with disabilities. Presenters will touch on the benefit application process, important factors around turning age 18, the impact of parental income/assets, and the myth that people receiving benefits can’t hold employment to reach further financial security.

Presented by Pete Mulder & Allison Leece, Social Security Benefits Counselors of Disability Network Southwest Michigan.
