Joe Reinecker Talks with Leaona Ellis About the Work Program

Summary by Andy Rausch

Joe Reinecker recently sat down for Resource Central to interview Leaona Ellis, Independent Living (IL) Counselor for the Work Program out of the Parsons SKIL branch. They discussed the ins-and-outs of Working Healthy and the Work Program.

This program allows people with disabilities to earn more income than would normally be permitted in regards to their social security benefits. The program also makes it possible for these individuals to receive care-giving benefits in certain circumstances.

If, after listening to the interview, people with disabilities have questions regarding the program and their eligibility, they can telephone Leaona at the Parsons SKIL office (620-421-5502).
