The SSA Ticket to Work was created as an incentive to help people with disabilities to go from being entirely supported on a disability program to being able to get out their homes and work. This program has been a real blessing to people with disabilities, but not everyone understands precisely its intention.
What Is the Ticket to Work Program?
The SSA Ticket to Work program is a way that people who are collecting disability benefits can explore their options to enter back into the workforce. This program allows them to find employment, get work experience, or attend vocational rehabilitation while still receiving their regular benefits. It can be difficult for those on disability benefits to make this transition without some extra support.
Who’s Eligible for this Program?
The Ticket to Work program was developed for people who are receiving SSI or SSDI and can return to work. This program created work incentives for those between the ages of 18 and 64 to find meaningful employment. Once you start getting either SSDI or SSI benefits because of a disability, you are eligible to be a participant in this program. This program is free to participate in and is entirely voluntary.
Benefits from This Program
Several benefits can be had from this program. There are full-time, part-time, and work-from-home opportunities in this program. You’re able to explore your option as you continue to collect your benefits.
