Service Details


Plan To Achieve Self Support (PASS) is an Supplemental Security Income (SSI) provision to help people with disabilities return to work.

PASS lets disabled people set aside money and/or things they own to pay for items or services they need to reach specific work goals.

Plans can include money for school, training or to start a business. The goal is to have enough income to reduce or eliminate your need for benefits provided under the Social Security and Supplemental Security Income programs.

The Social Security Administration does not count the money or resources you set aside under an approved PASS when they decide your initial or continuing eligibility for SSI. Having a PASS may help you qualify for SSI or may increase the amount of your SSI payment.
