Work Incentives Benefit Specialist Association - WIBSA
Welcome to the Wisconsin Work Incentives Benefit Specialist Association (WIBSA) website!
Work Incentive Benefit Specialists (WIBS) assist people with disabilities by helping them wade through the complexities to make informed choices about the impact of work on their benefits. WIBS can provide a written and oral analysis of a person's services and benefits and how work will change their cash payments, medical coverage, and continued eligibility.
If you have a disability, you should contact a WIBS when:
- You are considering work for the first time or re-entering the workforce.
- Your earnings change or increase.
- You are developing a career plan or actively job seeking.
- You have questions, concerns, or problems with current benefits.
