Good Steward is building a strong network of partnerships with state agencies, service providers, and consultants, all working in sync to ensure that we meet the needs of the disability community. Here are some of our partners:

Benefits to Work, LLC is a benefits planning company that specializes in providing services to individuals with disabling conditions. Here at Benefits to Work, we understand how much you want to work and, ultimately, become self-sufficient. Our staff of certified Work Incentive Practitioners (WIP’s) will do everything possible to help you achieve those goals.
Persons with disabilities are often afraid of losing their cash benefits and health insurance if they become employed. A benefits planner, like those at Benefits to Work, can review the effects of combining Supplemental Security Insurance (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) payments and/or Medicaid or Medicare benefits with your work income. In many situations, you may actually bring home more money while working, which can help you reach some of your goals. Benefits to Work can perform this custom analysis for your work and financial situation and explain options in a way that makes sense to you.

Our benefits planners will:

  • Provide a WISA report, including Work World summary, to show how working will affect your benefits;
  • Meet with you to explain options that work for you; and
  • Discuss possible Work Incentives that you may qualify for and help you apply for them.
