This Sunday, October 24, attorney Brian Anson will be the featured speaker at a meeting of POINT (Pursuing Our INdependence Together), a program run by the WJCS (Westchester Jewish Community Services). POINT is a non-sectarian program designed to provide assistance so that developmentally disabled and learning disabled individuals can live independently.

Mr. Anson will be discussing the impact of parent retirement on disabled offspring Social Security Disability and SSI benefits, and how any financial parental support of the disabled individual might affect SSI and food stamps, both eligibility and the amount of benefit received.
