Choosing to work can change your life! If you have a disability and want to work, the Ticket to Work program may be right for you. The Ticket Program is part of the Ticket to Work and Work Incentives Improvement Act of 1999 – legislation designed to remove many of the barriers that previously influenced people’s decisions about going to work, specifically the concern over losing health care coverage. We will help you explore your options, prepare for work, or gain experience while staying in control of your benefit choices. If you are age 18 through 64 and receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) you already qualify.
“As a person with a disability receiving SSDI, I thought my working days were over. With Ticket To Work, I don’t have to worry about losing my benefits and I can go back to work and feel active again!”
Make the choice that is right for you. Earning a living through employment is not something everyone can do but it may be right for you. We have the information and tools you need to help you manage the risks involved in earning your way off benefits. Those who can, find that the rewards far outweigh those risks. Take the time to learn about the employment services and supports Social Security offers to beneficiaries with disabilities … you may be surprised!
Stay in control of your benefit choices. Controlling benefits is important. That’s why you can consider work options while keeping benefits until you are able to support yourself.
Achieve greater personal satisfaction. Helping you maximize your earning potential and attain greater self-sufficiency are key goals for the Work Incentives and Ticket to Work Program. We will help you increase your self-confidence by working and gaining new skills while finding an employment solution that works for you.
