  • This webinar will provide an overview of several ways that individuals with I/DD can be eligible for Medicaid, and will answer these questions:

    How can an individual with I/DD continue to have Medicaid when there is a change in Social Security benefits (from SSI to SSDI) because of the retirement, disability, or death of a parent?
    What happens if an individual with I/DD (who never received SSI) is receiving a Social Security benefit from the parent's work record which is too high to qualify for any of the reglar NJ Medicaid categories?
    What are the advantages and disadvantages of NJ WorkAbility for individuals with I/DD who are employed?
    What is the difference between Managed Long-Term Services and Supports (MLTSS) and other types of Medicaid?

  • Each year, multitudes of students prepare to leave school in search of the perfect job, place to live, relationships, and lifestyle. For a person without a disability, this change from the secure world of school to the uncertainty of adulthood can be stressful and challenging. Join us as we discuss how to tackle a transition plan and what steps you can take to make sure that your child is ready to transition into adult life.

  • The New Jersey Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Services (DVRS) may be able to assist students ages 14-21 with disabilities who need services to prepare for, get, and keep a job. Its goal for students through its Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS) is to create a smooth transition from school to work so that upon graduation, a student is prepared to begin work or post-secondary training that leads to employment.

    This webinar is hosted by The Arc of New Jersey Family Institute and presented by Cheri R. Thompson, M.S., C.P.M., Program Planning and Development Specialist 1 at Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Services.
