Disability Benefit Specialist Program Celebrates 10th Anniversary

On October 14 & 15, 2010 Wisconsin’s Disability Benefit Specialist Program celebrated its 10th anniversary with a gala event in the Dells.

DRW has provided legal back-up and support to the Disability Benefit Specialists (DBS) since 2004. DBSs assist persons with disabilities between 18 and 59 with public and private benefit programs, such as Social Security Disability Insurance, Supplemental Security Income, Medicaid, and Medicare. The services provided by DRW to the Disability Benefit Specialists include training, technical assistance, case supervision, direct client representation, and program development services. DRW Managing Attorney Molly Bandt has been with the program since it began in 2000 and has overseen its growth from 5 DBSs in 8 counties to 70 DBSs in 57 counties; and from one attorney to eight attorneys. Congratulations to our Benefits Team on 10 years of excellent work!
