Disability Benefits

The Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission (MRC) can help you understand how working may affect your benefits.

Understanding your disability benefits can be complicated, but you can work and still receive benefits. The MRC is part of the solution to this process and can help you reach your goal of financial independence. Your local Vocational Rehabilitation Office and Project IMPACT is often the best place to get information.

MRC Disability Determination Services (DDS) is a division of the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission which is 100% funded by the Social Security Administration (SSA). DDS Disability Examiners and medical consultants determine eligibility of Massachusetts applicants for two disability programs: Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) - ages 18- 65 and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) - ages birth - 65.
