               New Items of Importance 


 1. "Benefits and Employment in 2022" Webinars.  


 The three webinars contain the same material I have presented in live

  workshops over the past 29 years.  The sessions explain how the benefit programs

  are organized and how income affects Title II disability programs (SSDI and CDB),

  SSI, and the related medical benefits.


  Webinar 101 The Basics of the Social Security Programs

  Webinar 102 How Wage Affects Title II Benefits (SSDI, CDB, DWB) and Medicare

  Webinar 103 How Income Affects SSI and Medicaid


  The webinars are recorded and available for viewing at any time.  I encourage viewers to send me questions regarding the content of each webinar.

 2.  Webinars Under Development


 I am currently updating a series of webinars focusing on school-to-work transition.  The webinars explain the Title II benefits and SSI benefits available to child and young adults under 22.  The webinars address the key questions routinely asked by parents and educators.  These webinars will be available by late May.


 3.  Live webinars.


    A number of my customers have asked about the availability of live webinars to allow their staff to ask questions during the presentation. I am now exploring the most feasible way of doing this and the most appropriate application to use.  A key issue how to manage audience attention to the webinar content and questions that aren't directly relevant to the content.  This has been a historical issue in live presentations, many previous attendees have remarked that questions posed by the audience distract their focus on the content.


    I would appreciate your suggestions of topics for future webinars.


 4.  Live workshops.

    At the present time, I have no plans to conduct live workshops. That ship has sailed, given my age and continuing variations of the Covid virus.
