About Our Association
The mission of the Wisconsin Work Incentives Benefit Specialist Association (WIBSA) is to support and promote high quality work incentives benefits counseling services for all people with disabilities through:
Promoting and upholding statewide standards
Encouraging training and professional development
Advocating for systems change at the state and federal levels
WIBSA was fully implemented in July of 2010. All members are Work Incentives Benefit specialists from Wisconsin. The members are currently and continuously involved in peer reviewing processes and training activities. The goal of all involved is to provide both a network of support for those in the field as well as ensure quality products are being produced.
