Ticket to Work

Industries, Inc. is a Certified Employment Network

Is your goal financial independence?

The Ticket to Work program may be right for you. Ticket to Work is a free and voluntary Social Security program that helps people who receive disability benefits return to work or work for the first time with a goal of obtaining full time employment.

It allows you, as a Social Security disability beneficiary, to explore your options, prepare for work or gain experience, while staying in control of your benefits. You can decide what kind of work is right for you, get help to find services that are right for you and receive training and support.

When you participate in the Ticket to Work program, you work with an Employment Network (EN) or Vocational Rehabilitation Agency (VR) to reduce or eliminate your dependence on SSDI and/or SSI cash benefits and increase your income.

If you are an adult age 18 through 64 and receive disability benefits you automatically are qualified for Ticket to Work.
