Community Work Incentives Coordinators (CWIC):

Our program has four CWICs who provide services for residents in parts of Middle and East Tennessee. Their focus is to provide information to Social Security beneficiaries with disabilities about how earnings from work affect Social Security and other public benefits.  Counselors assist individuals who are working or actively seeking employment. They also provide long-term benefits-related case management services throughout the course of a beneficiaries' employment, and provide outreach services.
