“Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), & Social Security Early Retirement: Know Your Options”

Melinni Taylor
Community Work Incentive Coordinator
Deaf Future Works, LLC

She is a certified Community Work Incentives Coordinator based in Austin. Deaf and fluent in ASL, she holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in social work from Gallaudet University. She works with individuals and organizations to advise them on issues, procedures, and matters related to the Social Security benefits program.

As one of the few Certified Community Work Incentives Coordinators fluent in ASL, she can connect with her clients in a way that truly helps them understand and manage their Social Security Benefits. For most people who receive SSI/SSDI, these benefits are a crucial lifeline and the primary means of supporting themselves and their families. Unfortunately, confusion and disruption of benefits occur far too frequently and come with serious and negative consequences.
