Why should I attend this workshop?

By 2025, the NDIA estimates that 30,000 participants will have SDA in their plans. As of September 2022, however, only 20,920 were receiving SDA payments.

This is a great workshop to attend if you have participants that have been deemed eligible for SDA, or already have SDA funded in their plan, but are funded for 3 resident, house for example and need to explore how to get that determination changed.

If you want to know more about SDA please take a look at our workshops on SDA eligibility.
