WIPA – Disability Benefits Planning
The Kansas Work Incentives Network (KWIN) is the only Work Incentive Planning and Assistance (WIPA) project in Kansas. WIPA is a disability benefits planning service, providing resources to Kansans with disabilities who want information about Social Security work incentives and community supports. Our staff are there to help clarify and navigate the balance of employment and disability benefits.
In order to help people make informed employment decisions as they transition to and/or advance in employment, clients are offered advisement, benefit analysis, and a work incentive plan by Social Security Administration-certified Community Work Incentive Coordinators. We serve all SSA disability beneficiaries regardless of the type of disability.
