Much of the apprehension for young adults, and even more so for their families, around the topic of employment is centered on fears of losing government benefits, including health insurance coverage. Professional and accurate benefits counseling is vital in the education process for these youth and their family members when discussing employment.

Through support from The Able Trust, Marino Campus offers benefits counseling. The goal of this support is to assist students in making informed choices about work. Staff will help beneficiaries to understand not only their benefits supports, but also how to utilize work incentives and other tools to assist them to achieve self-sufficiency through work.
