Webinar – Using SOAR to Access Social Security Disability Benefits

Webinar – Using SOAR to Access Social Security Disability Benefits
Thursday, April 21, 2016 at 2:00 pm EDT
The National Veterans Technical Assistance Center (NVTAC) is hosting the webinar “Using SOAR to Access Social Security Disability Benefits” on Thursday, April 21 at 2:00 pm EDT.
Social Security disability benefits are critical sources of income for veterans with disabling mental or physical health conditions, and lead to increased housing stability and improved healthcare outcomes. SSI/SSDI Outreach, Access and Recovery (SOAR), is a federal program sponsored by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to increase access to disability benefits among people who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness. Since 2006, states report 27,226 approvals on initial SSI/SSDI applications, with an approval rate of 65 percent in an average of 81 days using the SOAR model. This presentation will describe best practices for utilizing SOAR with veterans who access HVRP services, with special emphasis on employment and housing stability.
Jen Elder from the SAMHSA SOAR TA Center at Policy Research Associates, Inc. will be leading the discussion.
