Supplemental Security Income and PASS
Posted in: Supplemental Security Income on September 1st, 2011

If you or somebody you know is relieving Supplemental Security Income benefits and would like to consider starting a business, you might be eligible for PASS, or Plans To Achieve Self-Support.  It’s not unusual for individuals who have been stricken with disability to consider starting their own businesses – after all, it’s a way of achieving self-support and a higher standard of living that allows the disabled person to work according to their own interests and abilities.

own businessThe Social Security Administration wants to encourage entrepreneurial disabled individuals as much as they can, and there are ways to consider receiving your Supplemental Security Income benefits while starting a business.

How Do I Start?

The first step to getting approved for a PASS is by submitting a statement outlining your business aims and goals to the Social Security Administration.  The information asked for includes the following:

  • The job or business itself (your work goal)
  • the steps you will take and the things you will need in order to achieve your work goal (for example:  education or training, transportation, child care, or assistive technology);
  • the money you will use to pay for these things (this may be any income or assets, such as social security benefits, wages from a current job, or savings); and
  • A timetable for achieving your goal.

With this information, you can begin your conversation with the Social Security Administration about your eligibility for PASS.  But the Social Security Administration is all about helping individuals get back into the workforce should they desire – and if you have the desire to work, they’ll help you do it!
