A Plan for Achieving Self Support, or PASS for short, is a plan for your future. Many people with disabilities want to work, and you may be one of them. Perhaps you need to go back to school before you can get a job. Or, maybe you'd like to start your own business, but you don't have the money. Whatever your work goal may be, a PASS can help you reach it.
A PASS is an SSI work incentive that lets you use your own income or assets to help you reach your work goals. For example, you could set aside money to go to school to get specialized training for a job or to start a business. A plan is meant to help you get items, services, or skills you need to reach your goals.
This website will provide you with the basic information about a PASS, so you can decide if your situation meets the guidelines for a PASS and whether a PASS is the right work incentive for you.
This website also includes a PASS application form with drop down sample answers and helpful hints to assist you in completing the application online. You can then print your completed PASS application and submit it to the Social Security Administration (SSA).
