“PASS” Program A Ticket Off of Social Security Disability

Boca Raton Social Security Attorney and Lawyer, Randy Zeldin, Esq., is an advocate of the “PASS” program offered by the Social Security Administration. The PASS program (Plan to Achieve Self-Support), is a program through which recipients of Social Security Disability, may seek government assistance for re-training and eventual reintegration into the job market. The purpose of the program is to allow individuals to set a goal for either re-training or creation of a business opportunity. The applicant may need funds for uniforms, school, equipment and tools and transportation. The PASS program thereafter helps individuals set aside monies to pay for these items, such as a vehicle, computer, etc., to enable a return to work.

Usually the first and best step is for an individual to be evaluated by a certified vocational expert. The Social Security Administration can help an individual get an appointment with such a vocational counselor. Social Security will review the plans and recommendations of the vocational counselor and if approved, will be a great source for return to work. If Social Security denies the PASS plan, the individual has a right of appeal.
