Navigating public benefits is often challenging for Persons Living with HIV PWLH who are looking to maintain employment or return to work and need assistance with understanding how their income may affect their benefits. Benefits Counseling programs will help clients make decisions about returning to work and potentially reduce benefit loss and overpayment issues, while working closely with their legal counterparts to refer clients for legal services if needed. They will also conduct promotional and educational sessions for providers and consumers about this new service. Community Service Society of New York is a recognized leader in the field of benefits related training and has been funded to serve as the Training and Technical Assistance Center for this project.
