Website helps workers with disabilities find jobs

The Washington Department of Social and Health Services has launched a Website that will help workers with disabilities find employment.

Pathways to Employment allows users to create resumes, find the names of businesses in their area, and view videos of success stories.

A benefits calculator enables workers to determine how much money they can make without jeopardizing Social Security payments or other benefits.

“Many Washingtonians with a disability want to work,” said Stephen Kozak, a Medicaid Purchasing propject manager who led the team that developed the site.

But many fear that job income could cut them off from Social Security, he said.

The site was developed with a $416,305 federal grant.

The address is www.pathways.dshs.wa.gov.
