Through the Individual Plan for Employment, the counselor/teacher and the individual must develop a budget based on a list of actual expenses compared to income. It is important to consider all resources including Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits and Social Security Supplemental Income (SSI) benefits when determining income.

Every student must participate financially in his or her education. College students are required to apply for SSI/SSDI or contribute the maximum amount according to the Social Security Administration Red Book for the current year. If the Social Security application is denied or awarded at less than the maximum level because of individual or family income and assets, the student will contribute the difference to the maximum Supplemental Security Income (SSI) allowable amount for each semester or term attended.
