Benefits of WISE

If you receive social security benefits, you may have heard of WISE (Work Incentives Seminar Events) webinars. These are free webinars that go over various topics that are beneficial to social security beneficiaries. They cover a wide range of subjects. Last month’s topic was Ticket to Work and the Path to Employment. You can register for this month’s WISE webinar here: https://choosework.ssa.gov/wise/

Archived

WISE is known to be held on the fourth Wednesday of each month. If you miss a webinar, you can find it in their archives once they have the opportunity to post it. The site is called WISE on Demand, and you can view the transcripts, videos, and PDFs of the content discussed. They have many of their previous wise webinars available for viewing there. You can go to https://choosework.ssa.gov/wise/ to see them.

Email Updates

To not miss out on upcoming webinars, you can go to their site to register for the following forthcoming webinar. At the bottom, you can choose the option to sign up for email updates. This way, you will receive emails advertising the upcoming webinars and their topic for that month.

Accessibility

Real-time closed captioning is available to those who prefer to read the information being said in the webinars. You are given an option to email or download the transcript to yourself for future access.

Ticket to Work offers interpreters for those who understand American Sign Language. You can register with a Federal Communications Commission Video Relay Service provider at least a week ahead of the webinar.
