Transitioned from SSI or SSDI to Employment? Participants Wanted for Focus Groups.

San Diego State University Interwork Institute will be conducting focus groups and interviews of individuals to find out more about what worked and what did not work when they made the transition from SSI or SSDI benefits to employment. Participants will be paid $50.

Information participants provide will be recorded for transcription, but it will be completely confidential.

Focus groups will be held for individuals in the San Diego area and will take approximately 1 1/2 hours. For individuals outside of the San Diego area or individuals who do not wish to participate in a focus group, one-on-one phone interviews are also available.

1. Your name
2. The best phone number to reach you at
3. If you are interested in participating in the focus group or an individual interview
4. Days and times of the week that are best for you

A research assistant will contact you to schedule the focus group or interview.
