We’re Expanding!

Disability Rights Iowa is proud to announce our Benefits Planning services have expanded!

Our Work Incentives Planning and Assistance (WIPA) services now cover all of Iowa and several counties in Northwestern Illinois!

  • WIPA is a grant-funded program sponsored by the Social Security Administration.
  • Disability Rights IOWA (DRI) staff members who provide WIPA services are called Community Work Incentives Coordinators (CWICs). They focus on beneficiaries’ choices, future, and especially work goals.

Community Work Incentives Coordinators (CWICs) provide work incentives planning and assistance services to Social Security beneficiaries who receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI), who want to pursue gainful employment/self-employment or who are already employed or self-employed.

  • If you have basic questions about how earnings may affect your Social Security disability benefits, start by calling the Ticket Helpline 1-866-968-7842.
  • If you need services that are more detailed, the Ticket Helpline will refer you on to a CWIC that covers YOUR part of the state.
