Work Incentive Planning & Assistance (WIPA)
The Alaska WIPA Project
The Alaska WIPA Project provides assistance to beneficiaries who are working at wage employment, self-employment, or who have a job offer pending. Assistance is offered to help understand the various work incentive programs that might be available, and provide advice about how to manage one’s benefits during the transition to paid employment. We provide both initial and follow along assistance to beneficiaries. Benefits Counseling and a written Benefits Summary Analysis (BSA) is provided free of charge.
If you are currently working, about to begin work, or are self-employed please contact the Alaska WIPA Project.
