    20s and 30s Program: Understanding Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits

    We are excited to introduce attorney Scott Daniels to the 20s and 30s Networking Group on Wednesday, July 23, to help dispel the myths about Social Security Disability Insurance. Scott will provide information for those that find themselves unable to work, and show us how to “plan for a potential claim” down the road. He will also help to break down the realities of the program including maintaining employment part-time while collecting SSDI.
