WEBINAR
Why the Proposal to Stop SSI Benefits for Those with Outstanding Warrants is so Harmful

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM (Pacific)
HOST: Justice in Aging
FEE: None | REGISTER

In September, the House of Representatives passed HR 2792, an attempt to revive a disastrous old policy that would prohibit the payment of Supplemental Security Income (SSI) to people who are the subject of an arrest warrant for an alleged felony or for an alleged violation of probation or parole. Unfortunately, this bill was passed to pay to extend the Maternal, Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) program.

This bill would not help law enforcement secure the arrest of people they are seeking; instead it will harm thousands of people and cause them to lose their benefits. Join our webinar to hear why this is not an evidenced-based strategy for law enforcement to use.

We will have introductory remarks from Representative Danny Davis (D-IL) about his efforts in the fight against HR 2792 in the House. Join us to learn more about the details of this proposal, who it would harm, and why it is bad policy.

Real-time captioning and ASL interpretation will be provided for this webinar.

PRESENTERS:
Dara Baldwin, National Disability Rights Network
Tracey Gronniger, Justice in Aging
TJ Sutcliffe, The Arc

Participants in the webinar will learn to distinguish between the different MSP programs: Qualified Medicare Beneficiary (QMB), Specified Low-Income Beneficiary (SLMB), Qualified Individual (QI), and Qualified Disabled Working Individual (QDWI). Participants will also learn how to assist clients who may be eligible for MSP and tips on troubleshooting potential challenges in MSP programs.
