Background:  There are a number of obstacles facing social security beneficiaries, many of whom are employed or have a desire to enter or return to the workforce. Some of the obstacles reported by those beneficiaries include: the fear of losing benefits; the fear of losing health care coverage; and the unpredictable administration of available Social Security work incentives. One employment support that can help these beneficiaries achieve their employment goals and gain financial independence is Work Incentive Counseling.
