Welcome to the Pass Plan page!
PASS (Plan To Achieve Self-Support)
Here you will find information about what the Pass Plan is
and how it can Help YOU!
Social Security can provide you with assistance to pay for your education expenses, but there are requirements from you.
Your PASS Plan is designed to help you work your way off of needing disability benefits.
It does not mean you will lose assistance immediately, or that if your disability check stops , you won't be able to get back on your benefits.
When we start your PASS Plan, the first question will be; what is your goal?
Getting an education is the first step to reaching your goal.
You have to research job titles, such as CPA, auto mechanic, biological engineer, etc. The education has to be the minimum required to obtain a job in that field.
Try checking out http://online.onetcenter.org/; this is an occupational handbook to help you know what the requirements are for the job title you are looking to become.
As you scroll down you will see tasks required by the job, educational requirements, and estimated salaries. Maybe you'll find out that you can do the job without spending thousands in tuition. Remember, the PASS can assist you, but you MAY still need to have student loans.
If you wish to go to school and want the Ticket to Work Medical Review Protection, you must be taking at least 8 credit hours/semester and earning less than $1000/month.
