The Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) has developed a streamlined process of employment/income reporting, Benefits Counseling referrals, and Income Disregard submission through the completion of one form called the Employment and Earnings Reporting Form 2022 (fillable pdf).
The Employment & Earnings form is an update of the ICE form. A benefits planning enrollment form has been added to ensure we have information needed to make a referral to the Sherlock Center to provide benefits counseling.
DHS uses the information in this form to calculate any income disregards. An Income Disregard allows DHS to exclude part of the income you earn from your job when determining your benefits. Without the income disregard, you may be required to pay a portion of your cost of care.
Use this form to report 1) a new job, 2) any change in position, hours, or wages; or 3) when you leave a job.
All individuals receiving services through DDD are required to report income and employment. The Employment and Earnings Form should be completed if any of the following apply:
If you have any of those changes, please email DDD the completed form with the following documents:
Send these documents to DDD at the email: BHDDH.ICE@bhddh.ri.gov
