The Impact of the COVID pandemic on Social Security benefits for persons with IDD
On Sept 14, 2021 The Arc of New Jersey presented an informative webinar explaining the impact and major changes that occured to the Social Security Administration due to the COVID pandemic. Although most of these changes have been helpful, some have also had unintended consequences. Included in this discussion were additional forms of income supports which were passed as part of COVID relief, such as stimulus payments, unemployment insurance, and revisions to tax credits benefiting low-income individuals.
Speakers: Bethany Lilly, Senior Director of Income Policy, The Arc of the U.S. and Beverly Roberts, Director, Mainstreaming Medical Care Program, The Arc of New Jersey.
