The Social Security Administration will:

  • Work in each state to provide benefit planning and assistance to beneficiaries to assist them in their efforts to work.

  • Expand the number of Employment Support Representatives (ESRs). The ESRs are trained to facilitate the efforts of people who receive SSDI and SSI benefits and want to work, and can inform beneficiaries about the potential effect of work on their Social Security benefits.
