WIA Eligibility

WIA is federally funded and based on eligibility guidelines. To see if you're eligible, please visit your local SC Works Center:


SC Works Columbia                SC Works Lexington               SC Works Fairfield

700 Taylor Street.                201 Duffie Drive                   414 S. Congress St.

Columbia, SC 29201            Lexington, SC                        Winnsboro, SC 29180

(803) 737-5627                    (803) 359-6131                   (803) 815-0627


Please bring the following when visiting an SC Works Center:

1) Social Security Card (must have the CARD).

2) Photo Identification (like a Driver's License) with CORRECT address.
3) Paycheck Stub or other verification of income (if you've worked in the
past 6 months).

Please be aware that you will not likely be eligible for all the program's services if you are in default of a Student Loan, or if you are not registered with US Selective Services (if you are male and over the age of 18).

 This program provides intensive job search assistance. It is designed to help individuals from all walks of life re-enter the workforce. Case Managers work directly with you in your search for work. You will develop an Employment Plan with your Case Manager, and must remain in contact with him/her throughout your enrollment in WIA and beyond.  Personal commitment is necessary to benefit from this program. 


Depending on availability and appropriateness, training may be provided if you are unable to find work with your current skills . The first mandate, however, is to help customers search for work in a field where they already have training or experience. 


Due to growing interest and demand, not all those who are eligible under federal guidelines will be enrolled into the program. An initial assessment will be done to determine the appropriateness of enrolling each person, based on their individual needs and our current resources.
