PASS Plan Program

U.S. Social Security Administration Logo


A Plan for Achieving Self-Support (PASS) allows an individual with a disability to set aside otherwise countable income and/or resources s/he may own for a specific period of time in order to pay for items or services to achieve a specific work goal. Any individual who receives SSI benefits or who might qualify for SSI, or any person who receives SSDI (or a similar benefit) and could qualify for SSI, may qualify to have a PASS Plan. There is no limit to the number of successful PASS Plans one may use in a lifetime.
