May 27, 2010 - Assembly Bill 1331 went into effect January 1, 2008, requiring that every youth in foster care be screened for Supplemental Security Income (SSI). This training will help counties, providers and advocates improve implementation, discuss other issues related to the transition for foster youth with disabilities, and help stakeholders understand their role in facilitating a smooth transition.
