Trainings Scheduled for Benefits Information Specialists

Indiana’s Benefits Information Network liaisons are certified professionals who specialize in helping people with disabilities and their families understand benefits eligibility, work incentives, and other supports. Currently, there are 192 BIN liaisons, most of whom serve Vocational Rehabilitation Services’ customers from disability service provider organizations around the state.

The Indiana Institute’s Center on Community Living and Careers is offering several Basic- and Advanced-level BIN trainings throughout the year in various locations around the state. Download the 2011 Indiana BIN Liaison Training brochure at http://www.iidc.indiana.edu/styles/iidc/defiles/CCLC/BIN/BIN_Liaison_2011_brochure.pdf. The Benefits Information Network is funded by Indiana Medicaid Infrastructure Grant CFDA #93.768.
