What is the Ticket to Work Program?
The Ticket to Work and Self Sufficiency (Ticket) program was created in 1999 to provide Social Security disability beneficiaries, ages 18 through 64, with job placement to become employed, increase their earnings, and become financially independent.
Eligible Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) beneficiaries assign their Tickets to a SSA certified support service, including non-profit agencies and private Employment Networks (EN) to obtain job placement services.
This program is completely free and voluntary!
By participating, if you are making good progress toward the employment goal, Social Security will not do a Continuing Medical review of your disability.
The program provides a gradual transition back to full-time work without risking your cash or Medicare/Medicaid health care benefits.
