Can I still receive ILP services if I am working?

Yes.  HOWEVER, make sure that you list “employment training” as one of the goals in your TILP!  When you are working as part of your TILP, the money you make is disregarded and cannot be used to offset (or take away from) the ILP money to which you are entitled.  This is because the purpose of your employment is to gain knowledge of needed work skills, habits, and responsibilities to help you stay employed for a long time.

For example, let’s say you are making $1,000 per month.  If employment is one of your TILP goals, you are still eligible for things like graduation expenses, even if you might make enough money to pay for these expenses on your own.
