The Ticket to Work and Self-Sufficiency Program increases employment opportunities and choices for Social Security disability beneficiaries. Developed as part of the Ticket to Work and Work Incentives Improvement Act of 1999, the program is designed to remove some of the barriers, such as concern for losing health care coverage, which may keep people with disabilities from going back to work.
As an Employment Network through the Social Security Administration's Ticket to Work Program, our program helps people with disabilities obtain access to opportunities and services.
To be eligible, a person with disabilities must be:
- 18-64 years of age
- A recipient of Social Security Disability Benefits
- Willing to become financially independent
Under Social Security rules, people with disabilities who receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) can continue to receive benefits while they explore work options that may include employment, vocational rehabilitation and other support services from public and private providers, employers, and other organizations.
