Work Incentives make it possible for you to explore work while still receiving health care and cash benefits designed to give you a safety net:

• You can keep your Medicaid/Medicare while you work;

• You can select part-time or work-from-home alternatives to help you reach your goal of financial independence; and

• You can try work with confidence, knowing your benefits continue during your transition period.
