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.
If you should have general questions regarding SSA benefits please call or visit your
local SSA office, or visit the website at:https://www.ssa.gov/work/
